Amanda, just out of curiosity, are you planning to implement exim4 as your MTA?
If not, if you plan to use something else, then purging exim4 from your system shouldn't be an issue.
But if you are going to use it, take a look here: PkgExim4 - Debian Wiki
And here: http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...h08s05.html.en

I would like to host my own websites and right now I'm in a still period ..I'm standing still while I figure out what it is that I want to do ...
In that case, ignore those errors for now.
They have to do with the default MTA for Debian. No worries right now.
Turn your focus to having a website. Which I have to admit, I know nothing about.
Try a few web-searches on hosting a website in Debian.
There should be some valuable documentation out there to at least get you started.
Yes, exactly what I should do !
Depending on what your site to be, look for information on HTML.
My wife setup a nice looking site for her folks using HTML files.
After it had been a few years, and a college course is a little hazy, I went and got her HTML For Dummies. Perfect for a refresher, or for an intro.
Take a look around, though, for different ideas. And at the same time, post a question here on the forums.
We have several members who have their own websites that may be willing to help.
Thanks for all your help Jay !
BTW what is the benefit of using Google DNS as you posted on #42 ?
Googles' DNS servers are supposed to have pretty good uptime and query response time.
Sometimes, when I was doing internet tech support, I would advise customers to use those during DNS server outages.
I'm Learning A Lot From You Guys !:p
