I believe this is the default, no (exim set up for local mail only, so
that various daemons etc. can communicate with regular_joe@home?

IOW if you install Stretch and fail to intervene with the mailing system,
that's what you get (local mail works, no set up required).

Or something. Ignore this maybe.

We are no longer the same, you wiser but not sadder, and I sadder but not
wiser, for wiser I could hardly become without grave personal inconvenience,
whereas sorrow is a thing you can keep adding to all your life long, is it not,
like a stamp or an egg collection, without feeling very much the worse for it,
is it not. --Samuel Beckett
