Re: Removing Exim 4 from Sarge

Hello all,

   I'm currently working on a project to build up a new mail server. I want to 
use Exim as the MTA, but I would like to compile it from source instead of 
using the exim-whatever packages that have been installed by default.

   What I would like to know is what is the best way to remove the 
preinstalled binary of Exim so that I can download the source and compile it 
manually? When I try to remove it through aptitude, it wants to remove all 
the packages dependant upon it which I don't want to do since I will be 
installing another copy of Exim anyway.

   Any advice would be appreciated.
