In Squeeze if you de-select 'every' task possible during the
installer, you still get Exim installed because of Cron. It needs an
MTA (Exim4).

After my fresh new system is up and running, I can install Postfix
(which I did) and it also removes the conflicting MTA (Exim4)

Sadly it leaves all this on my freshly installed system and who knows
what else locate didn't actually find:

root@mail:~# locate exim
