    need help installing postfix

    I am trying to setup a mail server using postfix on an ubuntu 8.04.1 server. I used apt-get install postfix to install. After the install is run I get a message saying Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1).

    If I try to run apt-get install postfix, I get:
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    exim4-daemon-light: Depends: exim4-base (>= 4.69) but will not be installed
    Conflicts: mail-transport-agent
    postfix: Depends: ssl-cert but it is not going to be installed
    Conflicts: mail-transport-agent
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    I have tryed:
    apt-get -f install

    and then tryed again. just makes a cycle and get same errors over again.

    can somebody help with this please.

    I am trying to intall clamav, mailx, mailscanner, postfix, postfix-doc, postgrey, and qpopper. all goes well exept for postfix.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will use it as a reference. The problem has been with a corrupted dpkg file. I have fixed this and am now moving along with my setup.
