exim4 leftovers


I installed postfix when I setup my VPS and it uninstalled exim4. However there still a bunch of exim4 junk left on my server:

/etc/exim4/...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/exim4-...
/etc/rc0.d/K01exim4 thru 09
init.d still has a start exim4

Will it be ok to delete everything that has exim4 iin the pathname?

Thanks.

I think that most are wisely afraid to answer my inquiry, not wanting to be responsible for causing any damage to my system. I went ahead an deleted all of the folders/files/links that had exim4 in the name and all went well and everything is ok.
