Can leave Exim installed if I install Qmail from source?
(Exim is not started at boot time)

If so then I might just leave Exim alone and install Qmail from source.
I want to do Qmail from source so I know where things are.
Don't get me wrong, apt-get is my best friend, but sometimes I don't
learn what is going on behind the scenes.
