I use Nullmailer, and it removes several dependencies of Exim4, not just Exim4 
itself.  There are probably some config files somewhere that are not removed, 
but I have an 80GB disk which currently contains only the BR and /, no data, 
so I am not heartbroken.

I am not doing it to clear space, but to stop boot up getting slowed down by 
Exim4.  Others' no doubt have other motivations.  So I agree with you, 
Celejar,  that Exim is probably not purged - I don't mind, so I haven't 
actually checked!
