Bug#31784: manpage of dpkg (new example)

Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

The question "how do i change the MTA" became a FAQ.

Because the exchange of an packet with other packets depending on it
will be of general interest, i think an example would be good in the

Here is my suggestion:
   To exchange the MTA from smail to exim:
      dpkg -r smail
      cd /cdrom/debian/dists/stable/binary-i386/mail
      dpkg -i exim*.deb

The above steps are proved to work with smail->qmail and smail->exim.
