Yes, I do. But since before I was just using exim V3 I think I need to
invest a bit of reading of exim V4 docs. I have not been aware exim is
using subdirectories like that (nor have I found them in the deamon's
input directory, but I'll recheck that).

I'll do that, thanks a lot and sorry for bothering.
