Description Pekka Savola 2000-06-26 11:03:12 EDT
[ I bet this is an installer issue, not sendmail ]

In a TUI CD-ROM upgrade, during the installation there
appeared the text on background (similarly to the db3 error in beta1):

useradd[385]: new group: name=mailnull, gid 47
useradd[385]: new user: name=mailnull, uid=47, gid=47,
home=/var/spool/mqueue, shell=/dev/null
--- [ or the like ]

Hide that please.

I didn't remember getting that when I performed a fresh TUI bootnet
install with ~same packages.

Still happens in beta4.  Tested with TUI bootnet upgrade from RH6.0.

(Reopening so this will show apart from the other bug filed in Rawhide)
