I recently have mail-client/s-nail installed (because mail-client/nail will be masked in the near future) and now an update fails:
%> ionice -c3 emerge --update --newuse --deep @world

It seems that loghceck is depending on virtual/mailx-1 which wants to install net-mail/mailutils:

I need the functionality of s-nail, therefore replacing s-nail with mailutils is not an option for me. Additionally, I have not observed any problems with logcheck in combination with s-nail so far.
Any ideas to solve the problem?
You could solve this locally by unmasking =virtual/mailx-2
I ran into the same issue. Unmasking =virtual/mailx-2 solved it for me, too.
Same problem here. Workaround to unmask =virtual/mailx-2 also worked for me
