I try to replace an old mail server running sendmail with Exim4 on Sarge.
My idea was to run a simple configuration with the same behaviour like
the old machine and expand it, when I better understand Exim's
I made an experimental installation (smarthost, local delivery in
Maildir) and all seems to work, except that the old sendmail server uses
the full names from the gecos field of the passwd file to accept SMTP
mails. For example for my address it reads the first and last name and
accepts mails to ralf.gruner at ...
Can I use such a mechanism in Exim too? I have found no hint in the docs.
Or what would be a solution to replace this in a first step? My first
idea is an alias file, but I am not sure.
