No problem, no fault, no oops.

This is intended as Fedora comes with the MTA switching mechanism
through alternatives. Just check out that /usr/lib/sendmail is a
symlink. And the "sendmail" binary could be postfix
(/usr/lib/sendmail.postfix instead of /usr/lib/sendmail.sendmail as the
true binary).
