If you feel, the documentation is wrong/misleading/incomplete, please
add what you're missing. Even examples. If they're generic enough, I'm
more than happy to include them in the spec file. The same holds for
your additions/corrections/… whatever.

In case you (or somebody else) know a sponsor: I'm willing to write
a Book (German) about Exim and it's configuration. Partly probably a
translated version of the original one (already about 8 years old) and
of course with addtions according to the development of Exim.

You're welcome.

My reply to your messages was partly a more generic one, not every
sentence was exactly related to you.

And yes, I know, understanding the configuration breaks into more than
one part

    - how Email works
    - how the SMTP protocol works
    - how Exim processes the message from reception to delivery
    - the configuration sturcture
    - the configuration syntax (almost "language")

It's a challenging task, but - compared with other projects - it is fun
reading the spec file, reading the Exim book. Because it is complete,
and structured (yes, exceptions are possible, but not intended).

The documentation was one (if not *the*) reason to choose Exim about 20
years ago.
