I don't run stable, as mentioned in another thread my past 6 machines
have been too new to even install it.[0] I guess you could say new users
should not be installing testing or unstable but then what are they
going to install if their system isn't several years old. Note b-f
kernels are not updated so if your system doesn't work with the original
kernel from over 2 years ago you are out of luck.

exim4 has been in the archive since mid 2002 according to the changelogs
in testing/unstable, which was shortly after the woody release, Also,
exim4 will be the default MTA for the sarge release. I checked to see if
the problem I had still existed last night which it did, but I was able
to get the exim4 maintainers to understand the issue with some help from
Andreas and they plan to fix the problem soon.
