You can do anything with Sendmail, the saying goes, but why would you want to? The Exim mail-handling daemon is just as capable as the old stalwart of handling everyday electronic mail duties, and far easier to administer. With a style and polish that's typical of the blue-cover series of system administration books from O'Reilly, Exim: The Mail Transfer Agent shows how to set up and use Exim. You'll be very pleased with this book if you've chosen to work with Exim and 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 lookups are covered.


'A good book, and one I found I could actually start at the beginning of and read through.' - Andrew Johnson, West Yorkshire Linux User Group 'As this book is written by Exim's author you would expect it to be both authoritative and accurate and it is both of those - there were no glaring errors or omissions in the text. In addition the book is well written and perfectly readable...I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anybody with a need to manage an Exim based mail system of any size.' - Tom Hughes, Cvu, April

Dieses Buch beschreibt Exim3. Aktuell ist die Version 4.82. Da sich einige Dinge seither wirklich geändert haben, ist dieses Buch nicht nützlich. Ein aktuelleres (aber wegen der schnellen Entwicklung auch nicht mehr vollständiges) Werk existiert (Cambridge University). Weiterhin gibt es sehr gute Online-Dokumentation unter

Der nur eine Stern ist weder für Exim noch für das Buch an sich.

HASH(0xa43540e4) von 5 Sternen Very Hard Reading 5. August 2002
Von BRETT ROBSON - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm reluctant to criticize someone as talented as Philip Hazel who produces such a high quality product, distributes it for free and spends so much time supporting it.
However this book and the online documentation he provides is extremely difficult to use. He admits that he didn't want to write this book and hoped someone else would have. Indeed it would have been better if someone else had.
The book contains an exceptional amount of background information on mail protocols and procedures, and a lot of detail on Exim itself. If I had 5 weeks to read and absorb it all it would be wondersful.
For busy systems administrators using this book is a hard work, finding the information needed is slow and then understanding it is difficult. Dr Hazel's writing style is terse and rather like a mathematical text. There is no fluff in it's 600 pages. I find myself reading sentences repeatedly trying to understand them. Also the implications of certain information is not made obvious.
His lack of realistic examples is also a serious short coming. He glosses over remote access of mail via POP, IMAP and SMTP authentication even though this is the most common way of accessing mail these days. I would especially like to see discussion of an ISP type mail server with multiple domains, which is lacking.
Finally, there is lack of reference material in the appendices, a short form listing of command options and configuration options would be a great addition.
Warning: this book is for version 3 and version 4 is now available although version 3 is still used.

HASH(0xa5f4ad08) von 5 Sternen Out of date, but still a good starting point 16. Juni 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Exim is fairly straightforward for an MTA, though I found I needed to understand a bunch of concepts before I knew what Exim was doing. Exim: The Mail Transfer Agent does an excellent job of covering those concepts, much better than the official documentation, and for that this is essential reading for Exim users. This is the 1st edition, however, and only covers Exim release 3, so many of the important things that you might want to do with Exim that are easy to do in Exim 4 are not covered. You will need the official Exim website to complete your education and get up and running.
You might want to try using just the official documentation from the website and a good sample configuration file before buying this outdated book. (The Debian Linux installation of Exim comes with an excellent, well-commented default configuration.) If you get lost (like I did), buy this book used (like I didn't).
A new edition covering Exim 4 would easily get a 5 star review and earn a permanent spot on my bookshelf. Some quick reference appendicies and tables and an improved index, such as those common to most newer O'Reilly titles, would also be nice.

HASH(0xa5f4de70) von 5 Sternen Good book on a great program... 7. August 2002
Von Brad Knowles - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you can't (or won't) run sendmail, then IMO your only two real alternatives are postfix and Exim. I still believe that sendmail is a better choice, but both postfix and Exim are still quite good.
If you decide to run Exim, there are few people who could give you a better insight into how the program is configured and how it works internally, than the author of the program -- Phil Hazel.
However, keep in mind that the book is primarily oriented around version 3 of this program, and version 4 (with some significant changes) has already been produced. More information is available at [URL].

HASH(0xa5f4ded0) von 5 Sternen Good supplement to official documentation 27. Januar 2003
Von E. L. Green - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This won't replace the official documentation -- especially since it covers an old outdated version of EXIM -- but covers enough to be worthwhile as a supplement. Still, I was rather disappointed that much of what I was trying to do (such as set up spam filtering) wasn't covered by the book, and that I had to go online and read through back mailing list archives and read official documentation to get the job done. From any other publisher I wouldn't feel too bad about that, but from O'Reilly I expect better.

HASH(0xa41683a8) von 5 Sternen M. T. Mig. PE 15. Dezember 2004
Von M. T. Migs - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was a disappointment. While first reading the book I thought it was great. However, after I tried actually configuring the exim program I realized this book included only superficial examples. Any serious configuration required an in-depth understanding of the exim program far beyond the overview of this book. The necessary bits of information are scattered throughout the book. Unfortunately, these bit were often not referenced in the Index. This required my reading large sections trying locate a specific bit of information. The book's index is weak. It often includes references to variables, options and features that requires the specific name of the information being sought to locate. In contrast Exim's downloadable pdf documentation has the advantage of being quickly computer searchable. After being frustrated with this book I turned to the downloadable documentation and found it much more useful.
