Yes it does, but... it's not Debian (or maybe I should say exim) specific.  
I'm fairly new and after reading through a few pages I decided not to touch 
my mail system.  I still have the default exim install even though I have a 
Debian server/firewall.  I would love to see something like this.  I plan on 
posting some of the simple things I had to learn which frustrated me, like 
setting the clock correctly, or making the cd-rom user mountable 
(/etc/fstab).  I think a really great thing would be a mini-howto on the 
Debian help system.  As a new user it took me a while to get used to 
searching through man pages, finding out I could look up packages at the 
Debian web site, and finding out what "info" was.
