Subject: exim 4.54-1 and broken symlinks
There's something wrong with exim package and exim-config. It creates
/usr/sbin/sendmail.exe, which links to /bin/exim.exe, which doesn't exist.
There is /bin/exim, which links to /bin/exim-4.54-1.exe, but Cygwin .exe
magic doesn't apply here, so programs depending on /usr/sbin/sendmail
(like pine) doesn't work. Renaming /bin/exim to /bin/exim.exe fixed the
Hum, I just installed the latest exim on a new machine and can't reproduce
what you describe. exim-config created
lrwxrwxrwx 1 p-humblet sw 13 Dec 8 10:10 /usr/sbin/sendmail ->
(no .exe anywhere) , as one would expect from the line
ln -s -f /usr/bin/exim /usr/sbin/sendmail &&
Could there be a problem with your ln?
