Re: [Exim] Uninstalling exim



Hi Dave & Jim,

Thanks for your responses..
	rpm -e --allmatches exim-3.33-4

Did in fact allow me to uninstall this version of exim..  However It
didn't managed to deal with the uninstall of the previous version of the
script (which was the problem in the first place)..

[root@office mike]# rpm -e --allmatches exim-3.33-4

Summary     : Exim - Mail Transfer Agent - main package
Description :
Exim is an MTA (ie replaces sendmail), which is fast, efficient
and EASY TO CONFIGURE. Exim is developed at the University of Cambridge
for use on Unix systems connected to the Internet. It is freely
available
under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence. In overall style it
is similar to Smail 3, but its facilities are more extensive. It
contains
facilities for verifying incoming sender and recipient addresses,
for refusing mail from specified hosts, networks, or senders, and for
controlling mail relaying. The most advanced for me, is SMTP AUTH.
For all features please look at the Exim documantation (available as
plain text, info and html) or http://www.exim.org.
