Just out of curiosity, why would you want to switch away from qmail at
all in such circumstances?

Well, actually I have no intention to switch... (yet?) I do want to become more educated in the ways of exim because its the stock default MTA for Debian and I might think that any new mail systems I build could/should use it. I might also be called upon to work on an exim based machine, knowledge can be a powerful paycheck enhancer. At this point in time, I don't know enough about exim to say that I do or don't want to switch everything to it.

I don't have a problem with DJB's license requirements, and I use "unofficial" Debian packages to install qmail,djbdns,daemontools and these packages work just fine (keep djb's software running as it should) but installs some things outside of Debian's file system location requirements. I like the security reputation of this software and I understand qmail daemontools, and djbdns (after a lot of head + wall = loud banging noises) but now they seem simple to work with and never break. I know this can be said about other packages but hey, I picked my poison and it hasn't killed me yet... Just think, some people use sendmail on purpose, that just totally confuses me but oh well.
