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.
