Hi Corinna,

Only two smaller problems:

- The mailq and newaliases symlinks in /usr/bin must not be part
   of the package, otherwise they potentially overwrite an existing
   configuration.  They are created by sendmail-config anyway, if
   the user chooses to run the script.

- Probably less important, but the other MTAs are installed into
   /usr/sbin, not into /usr/libexec.  Fedora installs the sendmail
   binary as /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail, analog to postfix, which
   is installed on Cygwin and Linux as /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix.
   But that's not that important, as long as there's no collision.

Other than that, I think the package is GTG.

Thanks for the sharp eye. I'll remove the links.

Another minor issue in the last line /etc/postinstall/

chown SYSTEM:Administrators $UBINDIR/sendmail-config

This does not work with all versions of Windows because the "Administrators" (S-1-5-32-544) group name may be localized.
