Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The Exim 4.x mail server has built a huge worldwide following. That's even more impressive when you consider how tough it's been to find introductory tutorial material. For Exim 3, the software's creator wound up doing the job himself, but Exim 4's major changes made that book obsolete. Now, thankfully, Philip Hazel has fully updated his book for Release 4.66.

This is all the information you need to get started, and given the source, it's completely authoritative. Hazel especially focuses on Exim's new content scanning and security features, with new chapters covering everything from access control lists and address verification to header processing. But the entire book's been extensively revised -- in part, to reflect important changes to Exim configuration. Hazel specifically warns you not to use the 3.x book with Exim 4.x (or vice versa): If you're running the latest Exim, this is the one you need. Bill Camarda, from the July 2007 Read Only
