Hi folks

I'm setting up a new server and trying to configure Exim. For the first time 
I'm trying to use Postgresql with it, so have installed the exim-pgsql RPM 
which silly me thought enabled Postgresql support.

However, I get errors on the 

hide pgsql_server=(/tmp/.s.PGSQL_.5432)/exim/exim/<password>

What do I need to do to enable the pgsql support, or can someone at least 
point me to a suitable Google search?
