Since Exim wouldn't be touching the index files, is it safe to leave
exim as-is and let it handle the deliveries to the maildirs natively?
Exim's already got access to everything it needs including the quota.
I just want to make sure I won't horribly corrupt anything leaving it
as-is -- but I'm also desirous to not have to mess with how deliveries
are currently being done.
