I vote for still sending mail, if an address or username is provided for msec to send mail to.

I ask what happens if one does enter an address, under the new proposed config.
Today root get all reports unless one enters a username or a mail address. I understand it to mean that under the proposed no mail config it's just stored in logs.

But if one does enter a username or a mail address, it should send mail to the configured user or mail address. And then the setup/installation could prompt for an MTA to be installed if one haven't selected one. And possibly give the user a list of MTAs to use, perhaps with the default MTA, Postfix, preselected.

I guess what I'm saying is, configure msec to Not send mail if an MTA is not found and send if one is found.
Not shure how much work that would require thou. :-)=
