Description of problem:
redhat-switch-mail contains undocumented stub support for the Exim MTA, in
addition to postfix and sebdmail. But it's broken. get_default_mta in
functions.py checks for the current MTP being /usr/sbin/exim.postfix when it
should be /usr/sbin/sendmail.exim
Additionally it would help if the switch function could correctly stop or start
all three posible MTA services, not just sendmail and postfix.

Expected Results: redhat-switch-mail could usefully recognise Exim as the
currently installed MTA
exim is not yet supported in current redhat-switch-mail, because we don't have
it in the distribution.
I will add it in next version.
it's fixed now in 0.5.19, which will be available in next days. Thanks for your
