Re: turning off exim on port 25

That pretty much turns off exim altogether. While effective for disabling the Port 25 listen, it doesn't allow Bryan to use exim for his purposes. I think he's also using it in daemon mode rather than being run from inetd.

think you can do what you want by editing /etc/inetd.conf, and removing
or commenting out the following line:

smtp          stream  tcp     nowait  mail    /usr/sbin/exim exim -bs
