Question

How can I arrange to allow a limited set of users to perform a limited set of Exim administration functions? I don't want to put them all in the exim group.

Answer

See http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~ian/userv/. Using userv you can arrange (for example) for certain users to be able to invoke mailq or runq or other preset commands as exim (or any other user, as configured) with only userv configuration. If you want to check the particular Exim options available you can easily do it with shell or Perl scripts and userv configuration, and provided you know how to do argument unparsing > properly in shell or Perl it will be secure.
