exim4 forward all local mail?

I tried posting this in newbies and I got no response.

I have two problems I'm attempting to solve:
1. I'm attempting to send all local mail (postmaster, etc.) from my server to my ISP email address.
Is exim4 even the right tool for the job?
If not exim4 then what?

2. I'm hosting my vanity domain now and need the server to receive email for the mx record. I'm pretty sure the tool for the job is exim4, but I don't have a good example. Can someone post a sample or URL?

Exim will certainly do the job on both counts.

There's a good recipe here ->
