One thing I forgot to mention that reading Maildir using mailman2 requires
running as root.

Yeah, just used as some sort of connection indicator.
Should have used "---" instead.

About public-inbox:

<link https://public-inbox.org/public-inbox-mda.html>
<link https://public-inbox.org/public-inbox-watch.html>

Are you also asking info about mailman2 external archiver method?

mb2md does this.

Also can you give me the low level flow detail between exim4 and mailman2?
I mean how they exchange data. As I can't make out from installation
instructions. They are abstract. Quick read did not showed it.
Or else I will read, install and read more about it.
