O'Reilly does have an Exim book, but it is out of date. It covers the
3.x family, while 4.x has been out for quite a while now. The 4.x
family is very different from 3.x, so the book isn't worth a whole
lot these days.
I'm on my second major mail system deployment built around Exim, and
would recommend it to anybody needing a robust, flexible mail server.
