Some programs, most notably cron, expect /usr/sbin/sendmail
to point to mailer program such as exim or ssmtp.
Due to a buggy "ln -s" (now fixed in coreutils-6.6-2, thanks to Eric Blake),
a link /usr/sbin/sendmail.exe was sometimes created to point to
/usr/bin/exim.exe, which does not exist.
If this is the case on your installation, remove /usr/sbin/sendmail.exe
and create the proper symbolic link:
ln -s /usr/bin/exim /usr/sbin/sendmail
