Yes, maybe I got lost.


What's the correct way to specify a
macro (that one or others) in the Exim configuration?

I created /etc/exim4/conf.d/main/00_peter-localmacros for the stuff I
need to control via macros.

But I don't know if you use split config-file or you like the giant
file.

Just now I'm using the dpkg default (one big file), but I'm open to suggestions. Can I run "dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config", choose split config and keep current configured options?


/usr/share/doc/exim4-config/README.Debian.gz:

    "2.1.3  Using Exim Macros to control the configuration
... For a non-split configuration,
    /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.localmacros gets read before
    /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template."


Yes, I've already tried that too, and it does not output any error message, but update-exim4.conf does not copy anywhere what I write into /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.localmacros either. Is that intended?
