    Exim –> Postfix (Score: 0)
    by Anonymous on Friday, December 14 @ 00:25:00 GMT

    How easy is it to transition from Exim to Postfix? I’ve been running Exim simply because it was Debian’s default, but for security reasons I’d like to switch to Postfix (because the parts of it that matter don’t run as root, and breaking the SMTP listener won’t get you much). The transition is all that’s holding me back — I don’t know how easy Postfix is to set up, whether it has automatic support for running Procmail for any user who has a ~/.procmailrc file (no need to set up a ~/.forward), how easy it is to administer, etc. Aside from security issues, I’ve really been pretty happy with Exim.
