What is the structure of Exim config files?
Posted on 2009-04-27
I recently installed Exim to use as a front end box to separate our corporate email server from the Internet. Works pretty well, but I need to make some changes to timeout values in the config file and I'm getting really confused.
I ran the package configuration and selected to keep everything in a single config file. Most of the documents that I can find seem to point to point to a exim.conf file in the /etc/exim4 directory, however I cannot find this.
I "think" the config file is being built from the exim.conf.template file and some other information, but I'm not sure how and where it ends up.
Can anyone fill me in on how this all works, and where I need to go to edit the timeout values for exim and add the auto_thaw option?
