This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4 are no longer supported. If you could retest
this issue on a current release or on the latest development / test version, we
would appreciate that. Otherwise, this bug will be marked as CANTFIX one month
from now. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-23 12:19:47 UTC
This is a CANT FIX, because there are too many components in the system, which
need sendmail.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2007-07-23 12:22:59 UTC
Although it's worth noting for the record that postfix or exim (both also in the
distro) can fill that requirement as well or better.
