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.
