change mta in debian8


The mat can be changed in centos this way.

alternatives --display mta

The info display :

mta - status is manual.
link currently points to /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail
/usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail - priority 90
slave mta-pam: /etc/pam.d/smtp.sendmail
slave mta-mailq: /usr/bin/mailq.sendmail
slave mta-newaliases: /usr/bin/newaliases.sendmail
slave mta-rmail: /usr/bin/rmail.sendmail
slave mta-sendmail: /usr/lib/sendmail.sendmail
slave mta-mailqman: /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.sendmail.1.gz
slave mta-newaliasesman: /usr/share/man/man1/newaliases.sendmail.1.gz
slave mta-aliasesman: /usr/share/man/man5/aliases.sendmail.5.gz
slave mta-sendmailman: /usr/share/man/man8/sendmail.sendmail.8.gz
/usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix - priority 30
slave mta-pam: /etc/pam.d/smtp.postfix
slave mta-mailq: /usr/bin/mailq.postfix
slave mta-newaliases: /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
slave mta-rmail: /usr/bin/rmail.postfix
slave mta-sendmail: /usr/lib/sendmail.postfix
slave mta-mailqman: /usr/share/man/man1/mailq.postfix.1.gz
slave mta-newaliasesman: /usr/share/man/man1/newaliases.postfix.1.gz
slave mta-aliasesman: /usr/share/man/man5/aliases.postfix.5.gz
slave mta-sendmailman: /usr/share/man/man1/sendmail.postfix.1.gz
Current `best' version is /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail.


/usr/sbin/alternatives --set mta /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix

Now mta is changed into postfix.

I have installed postfix in my debian8,how do the same task in debian8?

No idea. In your Debian why not simply remove Sendmail after you installed Postfix? Less packages means less maintenance...
