Postfix Spam Filter using Ubuntu Dapper, MailScanner and ClamAV(beta)
 
I AM A NEW LINUX USER, I HAVE NEVER TOUCHED IT BEFORE...I AM USING UBUNTU 6.06

i have followed everything in the tutorial but i am stuck as to wondering where the mailscanner and amavis programs are to be installed, it also references the user "amavis" but i don't see anywhere that there is some kind of a user that is created that is called "amavis" and in the last paragragh on the last page when you run the command it asks for "uid amavis" but i don't remember creating the user "amavis" and when i delete this from the command it runs correctly but with it there i get a "invalid user" error, is there a page missing before page 4 or something? any help is well appreciated

What's the output of

?

that is what i got when i typed it, and is there a way that i can test the installation now that i have eveything installed?

Ok, then the user exists, you don't have to create it anymore. :)

Testing is covered here: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po...ota_courier_p5
Just create a few email addresses and send and receive messages, and check if errors occur.

@H8LinuxLOL - amavid-new should not install, MailScanner and Amavids-new basically do the same thing, you should not have them both on the same system.

I will be updating the documentation this coming week, I posted it as beta becaus it was more of a post for personal reference and I didn't think it would get much attention.
