        While I do prefer sendmail, I think there is one technical issue
 you guys are glossing over: The fact that we have an installed base of
 Exim, and documentation all over the place that assumes the Debian
 default is Exim, and given that other things appear equal (Exim,
 postfix, and sendmail all meet technical requirements, all are
 supported by strong communities, etc), the minimal disruption to a
 tested setup rule applies -- and Exim has a strong lead over theothers,
 my personal preference notwithstanding.
