Maybe you should just "--remove" the other MTAs? "--remove" is for
letting the configuration files there, but not the program and
libraries, as they are easily installed back. If the installation back
does not go well, it's a bug, and it should be reported.
If you want the configuration files to go away along with the package,
use "--purge" instead.
Hope it helped.
