Yep, but it wasn't. I send mail out from this machine and don't get
*any* incoming mail, including for the address I want to send mail out
under. (Which I admit is slightly odd). The 'eximconfig'
configuration wasn't quite right, and I ended up editing exim.conf,
which was easier (!). In addition, some of eximconfig's questions were
quite confusing, as I remember, and it took me several tries to figure
out what I was supposed to put in for my system, before I got it
I don't care whether it 'should' be trivial; the fact is that it wasn't.
The postfix configuration, despite a couple of slightly confusing
questions, was trivial.
I don't know about exim4 configuration, which may be wonderful, because
it isn't in 'testing' yet. Postfix is.
