And since I'm working largely off research I did about 2 years ago, your
impression is more probably correct than mine is. Apparently I should
revisit Postfix, since it has "geek on the street" advantages over Exim.

In my case, it probably means more surgery; I plan on continuing to use
CGPro for POP/IMAP/Webmail/outgoing SMTP, at least for the near future, so
setting up Apple's Postfix as incoming-only and disabling Apple's Cyrus
(which through Panther has been of questionable reliability judging from the
Apple listservs) might be more of a pain than just setting up a current
Postfix implementation on my own.
