Useful Exim Commands

Exim is a mail transfer agent used on Unix-like operating systems.  Exim is highly configurable, and therefore has features that are lacking in other MTAs. Exim  has always had substantial facilities for mail policy controls, providing facilities for the administrator to control who may send or relay mail through the system.
