You do know that exim can talk directly with MySQL, right ? And
since you can specify the SQL Queries, the database can have
any format, thus integrating with everything else ?

I even have exim sharing the same table with radius (and currier-imap)
on one of my sites.

Having exim talking directly with spamassassin is also very good and
easy, and speed things up quite a bit.

Using things like maildrop, vpopmail, amavis etc with exim is
just a good way to slow things down. The direct connection between
exim and everything else (spamassassin, antivirus etc) allows you
to reject mails during delivery, without the need to accept it
before passing to another agent.
