When removing or replacing sendmail with another MTA, the users smmsp and

3. check for existance of mailnull and smmsp users

Expected results:

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-07-11 12:51:33 UTC
No package may ever remove users or groups by package removal. This could have
strange effects to the whole system.

Closing as "NOT A BUG".
