Description Dan Taylor 2004-02-13 11:13:44 EST
Description of problem:
redhat-switch-mail does not seem to accept command line parameters 
and will always dump you to an interactive curses-based or x-based 
interface.  Having it accept a parameter from the command line would 
allow users to call this tool in the %post of a kickstart.  If the 
parameter is invalid, it should return error or usage info rather 
than dumping to the interactive mode (so kickstart wont hang).

if you want to use command line paramaters, you should use alternates,
which is used as backend in redhat-switch-mail.

I don't think it will make sence to add this feature there.
