Package: exim4-base
Version: 4.62-3
Severity: normal


Looking at the cron-skript in the package under
/etc/cron.daily/exim4-base, I found, that, in the commentary there is
a possible typo, where to set the "mail adress", because it is used
later in the script as DAILY_REPORT_TO. It's the line under the "set
this to a mail address to receive daily activity reports".

I think, if I was not wrong, then this small patch corrects it:

 # set this to a mail address to receive daily activity reports.

 # set this to some other value if you don't want the panic log to be
 # watched by this script, for example when you're using your own log
