Very well indeed.  I've been using it for years and the only real problem
I've run into was the lack of a syslog socket in the chroot.  That was fixed
with Lenny/2.5.5.  I've no experience with it myself, but IIRC there may be
issues running Postfix multi-instance on Debian.

Take this for what it's worth:  On my "Swiss Army Knife" server, I installed
Sarge fresh in 2006 using a compact net install from boot floppies.  After
the base install was complete, I installed Postfix via apt-get.  I don't
recall doing any manual removal of Exim.  I've upgraded the system in place
all the way to Lenny, over a 4 year period.

I currently have the following related to Exim:

~$ locate exim
