I'm using Slackware 9. I just configured Exim as my MTA. However my machine is still running sendmail as the MTA. I'm trying to figure out how to shutdown sendmail and run Exim instead. I wasn't quite clear as what to do from the Exim documentation. It says:
"The name by which the system's MTA is called by mail user agents is either /usr/sbin/sendmail, or /usr/lib/sendmail (depending on the operating system), and it is necessary to make this name point to the exim binary in order to get the user agents to pass messages to Exim. This is normally done by renaming any existing file and making /usr/sbin/sendmail or /usr/lib/sendmail a symbolic link to the exim binary. It is a good idea to remove any setuid privilege and executable status from the old MTA. It is then necessary to stop and restart the mailer daemon, if one is running."
