Description Leonid Mamtchenkov 2004-05-21 11:32:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
exim-4.33-2 shipped with Fedora Linux Core 2 does not provide
/usr/sbin/sendmail which many programs do rely on.  It only provides a
/usr/sbin/sendmail.exim which is rather useless.  An example of a
program that relies on /usr/sbin/sendmail is mutt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
exim-4.33-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use exim MTA
2. Try to send message from mutt
3.
    

Actual Results:  Mutt displays the error message:

Error sending message, child exited 127 (Exec error.).

And the message is not sent.

Expected Results:  Message should be sent and no errors should be
displayed.

Additional info:

I have created the symlink manually and everything started to work as
expected.

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-05-21 12:58:51 UTC
Please use

    alternatives --config mta
or
    alternatives --set mta /usr/sbin/sendmail.exim

to switch your MTA to exim.
