I was merely pointing out the error in your statement as is related to
my advice to him. Exim is the default mailer with Debian. It is simple,
and easy to configure, and it is more standard (as opposed to postfix,
which is relatively new, and not many people know a lot about it, so
finding help is harder).

On that, it is completely preference which MTA you choose, I'm not trying
to sway anyone one way or the other, simply because I don't care enough
about MTA's to preach about them :)
