On the other hand, exim is the default MTA for Debian, and I know

/groups/group/spam* code does work just as well? Or does qmail have
some architectural advantages that deliver better speed/reliability

install) and am trying to decide whether to stick with exim (which has
worked fine so far) or switch to qmail.
TIA for your opinions!
