UUCP works just fine over TCP/IP and works with Exim and Postfix (I have
used both with UUCP over TCP/IP) with regular ARPA style addresses (@
addressing). Might be worthwhile to set up just to keep in practice.
Once served as an MX host for a local family that moved overseas for a
while and they had their own domain. They would connect to the Internet
when they could, connect to me and pull the family's mail by UUCP over
TCP/IP. That wasn't that long ago (less than 10 years ago).
It is actually a pretty decent way to collect email for an entire domain
when you have only intermittent connectivity.
