[hobbit] Debian3.1-Exim4 and Alerts in Hobbit

I myself am not very familiar with exim, but on my server, the default 
mailcommand "mail" is contacting my localy installed kolab server and 
sends alert-mails through its smtp postfix.
So I would say, having a working exim setup would be all you need. You 
can arrange this by executing "dpkg-reconfigure exim4".

You can test your exim by doing the following:

# telnet localhost 25
From: me at localhost

<Ctrl> + D

Kind regards
