Apparently "aptitude purge exim4" does not remove /etc/exim4 or

"dpkg -L exim4" shows no reference to /etc/exim4 in the exim4
package. (But see below.)


I've apparently got wrong perms on /etc/exim4 [...]
What process creates these directories?
Somewhat belatedly,

ls -ld /etc/exim4
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 May 9 13:24 /etc/exim4

apt-file search etc/exim4 | cut -d: -f1 | sort -u
debian-edu-config
exim4-config
sa-exim

(Remove the cut|sort to see the files each package would create.)


Where does exim4-config store its info [...]
In /etc/exim4 ("dpkg -L exim4-config").

Chris



apt-get autoremove exim4* --purge
