[Pkg-exim4-users] upgrading from sarge to etch

Is there any way to stop being prompted about the configuration file changes when upgrading from sarge to etch. I use
exim4 in a very minimal way and I would gladly let the package upgrade/change whatever it wants, but I can not determine
how to do this.


My goal is to create a 'push button' upgrade from sarge to etch, but exim4 is one of my sticking points. Here is an
example of one of the 20 or so prompts during the upgrade


Configuration file `/etc/exim4/conf.d/auth/30_exim4-config_examples'

 ==> Deleted (by you or by a script) since installation.

 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.

   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:

    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version

    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version

      D     : show the differences between the versions

      Z     : background this process to examine the situation

 The default action is to keep your current version.

*** 30_exim4-config_examples (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?



I do not care how this gets answered (or if it does) as long as I can prevent the upgrade from stopping at these.


Thanks in advance
