Description Bryan Mason 2009-04-06 14:32:25 EDT
Description of problem:

    Sendmail should provide the "MTA" capability.  Some packages
    require "MTA" and thus sendmail cannot satisfy that dependency.
    Postfix and exim both provide "MTA".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

    1.  rpm -q --provides sendmail | grep MTA
Actual results:

    # rpm -q --provides sendmail | grep MTA

Expected results:

    # rpm -q --provides sendmail | grep MTA

Additional info:

    This appears to have been fixed upstream at some point.  From Fedora 10:

        $ cat /etc/redhat-release 
    	Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)

    	$ rpm -q sendmail
    	$ rpm -q --provides sendmail | grep MTA
