[Reportbug-maint] Bug#524640: reportbug: Please skip ACK disclaimer if sending failed

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.1
Severity: normal

Here's the bug report as requested on IRC:
| Sending message via /usr/sbin/sendmail...
| sendmail: RCPT TO:<submit at bugs.debian.org> (513 Relaying denied.)
| Original write failed, wrote bug report to /tmp/reportbug-wicd-20090418-21047--9CjEh
| If you want to provide additional information, please wait to receive the bug
| tracking number via email; you may then send any extra information to
| n at bugs.debian.org (e.g. 999999 at bugs.debian.org), where n is the bug number.
| Normally you will receive an acknowledgement via email including the bug report
| number within an hour.

There's no reason to speak about the ACK that shall be received when no
message is sent. People might look at the bottom line and think it went
smoothly. (Hopefully, I knew relaying was going to be denied. :p)
