so how does exim compare in all of this?
Sorry Jamie - In my case, and my case alone, Exim doesn't compare. There are many very good MTA's out there. For me I know Sendmail - ( I compile from source ). I've heard lots of good things about Qmail to I did consider that one only.Also every Guru I've met in person uses Sendmail. Not that means much but I do admire those Guru's.
Thanks al again. It's lookin' like Sendmail for me .. Cheers Rudi.
