E-mail is the most widely used application on the Internet. Exim is rapidly becoming one of the most widely used mail servers, handling mail for tens of millions of users daily.

Exim is free software. It's easy to configure. It's scalable, running on single-user desktop systems as well as on ISP servers handling millions of users. (It's the default server on many Linux systems, and it's available for countless versions of UNIX.)

Exim is fast, flexible, and reliable. It is designed not to lose messages even if your server machine crashes. It can be used as a secure Internet-facing front-end to other, proprietary, mail systems used internally in your organisation.

Exim supports lookups from LDAP servers, SQL databases, and other data sources, letting you automate maintenance and configuration. It can work in conjunction with other tools for virus-checking and spam-blocking, to reject unwanted e-mails before they even enter your site.

This book will help you deploy Exim as your SMTP e-mail server throughout your organisation, and to configure, tune, and secure your Exim systems.

Philip Hazel as a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, but has spent the last 30 years writing general-purpose software for the Computing Service at the University of Cambridge in England. Since moving from an IBM mainframe to Unix in the early 1990s, Philip has become more and more involved with email. He started developing Exim in 1995 and PCRE (the regular expression library) in 1997. Since then, most of his working time has been spent maintaining and extended Exim.
