removing sendmail leaves user smmsp and mailnull
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:07 EST
Description of problem:
When removing or replacing sendmail with another MTA, the users smmsp and
mailnull are not removed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 8.12.11-4.RHEL3.1,
exists in previous versions, too.
Remove sendmail after a replace with postfix (for example).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install postfix
2. remove sendmail
3. check for existance of mailnull and smmsp users
users still exist.
users smmsp and mailnull should be gone
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".
