Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
postfix-2.2.2-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Exact commands given in Description.

When I installed FC4-test3, I explicitly removed exim and added Postfix in the installer.  I did *not* install exim, then remove it and install Postfix, or install both and then remove exim or anything like that.


Actual Results:  See above.  Note also that the sent email is not bounced (the bounce couldn't be delivered) so the email is just lost.

Expected Results:  The mail should have been delivered.

Please run a rpm install test of the postfix package with "rpm -V postfix".

If there are no errors (output), then check if postfix is activated with
"alternatives --config mta".
