Amazon Review

You can do anything with sendmail, the saying goes, but why would you want to? The Exim mail-handling daemon, described in Philip Hazel's Exim: The Mail Transfer Agent, is just as capable as the old stalwart for handling everyday electronic mail duties, and is far easier to administer. Exim: The Mail Transfer Agent shows how to set up and use Exim with a style and polish that's typical of the blue-cover series of system-administration books from O'Reilly. You'll be very pleased with this book if you've chosen to work with Exim but require better information than the online documentation can provide. Philip Hazel has done a good job of combining a comprehensive set of details--including lots of command listings--with advice and practical examples that will make an administrator's life easier.

Typical of this approach is the treatment of methods for blocking traffic from bad hosts that attempt to mail to your Exim station. The book runs through alternative techniques--using a public blocking list, blocking hosts explicitly and so on--in series. Each technique is described in terms of what happens and why, and includes listings of the relevant configuration commands. Other sections, such as those concerned with SMTP configuration, are more reference-like. They contain long lists of commands and options, in which the purpose of each is explained. --David Wall

Topics covered: How to set up, configure and administer the Exim mail-handling agent. Directors, routers, transports, filters and the integration of Exim with Perl, shell scripts and database look-ups are covered.

Review

A must-buy for any EXIM administrator, or indeed, anyone who is looking at learning EXIM seriously. -- Linux Format, Nov 2002

Format: Paperback
This book refers to Exim 3.x, which you really should not be using now. Exim 4.x has been out for several years, and configuration is quite different - even conceptually. Don't buy this book, buy the second edition of "The Exim SMTP Mail Server: Official Guide for Release 4", by the same author.

I'm reluctant to give this book such a low score, because it really was an excellent book when it was current.

This book shows just about every configuration one might wish to use when setting up Exim, and it proved very easy to find a configuration that pretty much matched my needs.
What this book lacks is a reference section, so it was not that easy to fine tune the configuration - there was a lot of going backwards and forwards to try and locate where in the book a particular feature had been discussed. Everything is there, and nothing was left out, but finding where it was may at times be a problem.

By A Customer on 27 Mar. 2002
Format: Paperback
Exim is a very flexible messaging server for unix/like platforms.
The book is a comfortable reading, and an essential guide/reference to anybody looking at setting up exim. Together with a printout of exim's FAQs I got a system to handle mail for a number of domains with some fancy forwardings and configurations in no time at all (after giving up on configuring sendmail).
