    (your question is a little vague actually)

    yeah if you don't want to replace any files you can install exim4 into a different directory (./configure --prefix=/another/location).

    will you be installing from source or packages?

    the exim4 config file is very different from exim3. there's a automated conversion tool available, but it's just a barebones convertor. i recommend that you convert it by hand. that way, so that you can immediately appreciate exim4's new features (ACLs and such). i mean, otherwise, why bother upgrading then?
