Thanks for the report about exim. The need to rebaseall on many
systems has already
been mentioned several times. I will make sure that this is clear in
and perhaps add a warning in exim-config.
About the postinstall, it's the first time this problem is reported.
Has setup changed its
criterion to add the "done" extension ? It is normal for the last
command in the script
