Hi there,

as Anssi made me aware msec currently has a Requires on
sendmail-command for cauldron, this was the outcome of the
last discussion about msec / MTA.
However, currently in /etc/urpmi/prefer.vendor.list postfix
is preferred as sendmail-command and mail-server.

Anssi's vote and mine is to replace preference on postfix
with dma to ensure users get dma installed with the
upgrade from Mageia 1 -> 2 and not postfix which needs

Those who want to use postfix will surely not use the virtual
provides for sendmail-command or mail-server and directly
install postfix.

Any comments or objections?

Kind Regards
