View Full Version : [all variants] postfix installation error

May 6th, 2009, 04:23 AM
Hi guys,

I'm setting up my new Jaunty server box and I cannot get postfix to install correctly.

When I run apt-get, I get this (look at the end):

Postfix is now set up with a default configuration. If you need to make
changes, edit
/etc/postfix/main.cf (and others) as needed. To view Postfix configuration
values, see postconf(1).

After modifying main.cf, be sure to run '/etc/init.d/postfix reload'.

Thanks in advance for any help.
