Package: exim4-config
Version: 4.80-7
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

could a macro for the outgoing interface be added to
conf.d/transport/30_exim4-config_remote_smtp ?


so that one can configure the outgoing interface in
conf.d/main/000_localmacros instead of changing the above metioned file?

Thanks & greetings,
