I never read the entire manual; doing that makes no sense at all. What
you really want to do is to get yourself acquainted with the most
important concepts, and search the manual (hit '/' in info) when you
need to know a specific detail; and if you can't find the detail, ask
here or over on exim-users@exim.org.

In my view, those 'most important concepts' are routers, transports,
ACLs, and (especially) string expansion. If you read the manual's
introduction on those topics and make sure you understand the example
configuration file (/usr/share/doc/exim4/examples/example.conf.gz),
you'll know where to go from there.

I only ever used the manual and the example config file :-)
