Package: exim4
Version: 4.86-3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I tried to get exim routing mails to a user with a low UID (500).
Using the documentation under /usr/share/doc/exim4/README.Debian.gz Chapter 2.7
gave me hard times, as it describes a file called /ect/exim4/lowuid_aliases
whereas it has to be named /etc/exim4/lowuid-aliases (by looking into

Please rectify this in the documentation.

Thank you!
