Problem

. MH / Exmh does not work on newly installed RedHat / Fedora Core Systems; it prints a cryptic error message:

post: problem initializing server; [BHST] premature end-of-file on pipe

Solution

. The reason is that /usr/lib/sendmail cannot be found. To fix, create a symbolic link:

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s ../sbin/sendmail sendmail
