It's in Extras:

Installing it is as easy as:

# yum install exim


Didn't know about Extras. Thanks.

If you want to know why it was moved to Extras, you can read some
general guidelines here:


Well, thanks for the help Marc.

I do wonder though; postfix is in there and so is sendmail, but not Exim, when it's smaller and lighter and has more features than both of them combined - and fully (well, 99%) compatible to sendmail's command line switches. One would have thought Exim would replace both of those.

Oh, well, I guess its better than it being dropped completely.

Thanks again for the pointer :)
