I had posted a related bug report back in December 2006 because of "yum" pulling in "exim" from "FE" in order to resolve a dependency on "/usr/sbin/sendmail" when installing "mutt" at:

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=219920 .

The bug got closed by J. Katz after classification as "NOTABUG". The argument was that the "sendmail" command is provided by several packages in "FC/FE" without particular ranking and "exim" simply seems to win by alphabetical order compared to "postfix" or "sendmail" .. :-/
