retitle 508644 Sorting out mail-transport-agent mess thanks Hi, I'd like to close/reassign this bug... :-) A better description of what this bug is about can actually be read in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=474999 and the solution would be to file bugs against those 8 packages (listed in #508644) which depend on mail-transfer-agent instead of on "exim4 | mail-transfer-agent". But as this would hardcode exim4 as the default MTA for Debian in a number of packages, some better solutions have been proposed in http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2008/05/msg00381.html with the best choice appearantly being <firstname.lastname@example.org> which proposes that exim4 should provide default-mta, packages needing an MTA should depend on default-mta | mail-transfer-agent and the other MTAs should provide mail-transfer-agent. Then, if we want to change the default, we just need to touch two packages. As per policy I'd like to gather consensus on this before mass filing bugs. regards, Holger
