Since during all Debian installs, people are asked to create a non-root user (ie: joshk); why not tell exim to use the account created during setup as the one we assume to be for day-to-day use? In all *nix installations where this happens, the account I choose is always the one I tell root mail to go to. Does debian-installer currently REQUIRE you to create a non-root account? If it does, then modifying the exim configure scripts for local delivery and root mail to $SETUP_USER is trivial (I think?) -Josh -- "Notice that, written there, rather legibly, in the Baroque style common to New York subway wall writers, was, uhm... was the old familiar suggestion.
