Description of problem:
When removing or replacing sendmail with another MTA, the users smmsp and
mailnull are not removed.

Steps to Reproduce:

2. remove sendmail
3. check for existance of mailnull and smmsp users
Actual results:
users still exist.

Expected results:

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-07-11 08:51:33 EDT
No package may ever remove users or groups by package removal. This could have
strange effects to the whole system.

Closing as "NOT A BUG".
