    Summary     : The exim mail transfer agent
    Description :
    Exim is a message transfer agent (MTA) developed at the University of
    Cambridge for use on Unix systems connected to the Internet. It is
    freely available under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence. In
    style it is similar to Smail 3, but its facilities are more
    general. There is a great deal of flexibility in the way mail can be
    routed, and there are extensive facilities for checking incoming
    mail. Exim can be installed in place of sendmail, although the
    configuration of exim is quite different to that of sendmail.
