Subject: [exim] Exim list changes
I have just made 2 changes to the list configurations on exim.org:-

  1. Monthly list reminders have been switched off.
     It has been a long time since these were considered best
     practice, and routinely sending out clear text passwords
     is not sensible.

  2. VERP has been set on all the lists.  This will make the
     handling of non-delivery notifications much more effective.
     If you filter lists based on the envelope sender address then
     this may break your filtering.  The message headers should not

VERP handling will increase the load on the exim.org machines, but
the reduced throughput on the list in recent years makes this less
of an issue.
