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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use exim MTA
2. Try to send message from mutt
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
I have created the symlink manually and everything started to work as
alternatives --config mta
alternatives --set mta /usr/sbin/sendmail.exim
to switch your MTA to exim.
