Thats not totally true, these packages are listed as Recommends.

The problem is, I listed them at Recommends, cause check_mailq is based on 
this MTAs (and qmail). So any other MTA doesn't make sense in this usecase. 
The solution should be, to move the packages to Suggests.

With kind regards, Jan.
