Hello, I installed Ubuntu 8.04 using the howto forge perfect server tutorial. I also installed request tracker 3.6 using apt-get. It installed fine but it ended up installing exim. Now when I try to install postfix, it gives me the following: Code: [email protected]:/# apt-get install postfix libsasl2-2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules procmail Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done libsasl2-2 is already the newest version. libsasl2-modules is already the newest version. The following extra packages will be installed: db4.6-util Suggested packages: mail-reader postfix-cdb postfix-ldap postfix-mysql postfix-pcre postfix-pgsql resolvconf The following packages will be REMOVED: exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light The following NEW packages will be installed: db4.6-util postfix procmail sasl2-bin 0 upgraded, 4 newly installed, 3 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Is there a way I can remove it as a dependency so I can uninstall it and replace it with postfix?
