dpkg: exim4-config: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you requested
 
I installed postfix and dovecot according to Multiserver Setup With Dedicated Web, Email, DNS & MySQL Database Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3...

Code:

apt-get -y install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc openssl getmail4 rkhunter binutils dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d

(mysql-client mysql-server not included in the above command since I already installed it)


...and aptitude complained about exim4 dependencies. I'm assuming this is OK but just want to be sure.

Code:

The following extra packages will be installed:
  dovecot-common libperl5.10 libpq5 ssl-cert unhide
Suggested packages:
  binutils-doc postfix-pgsql postfix-ldap postfix-pcre sasl2-bin resolvconf
  postfix-cdb ufw tripwire openssl-blacklist
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  exim4 exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  binutils dovecot-common dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d getmail4 libperl5.10
  libpq5 postfix postfix-doc postfix-mysql rkhunter ssl-cert sudo unhide

I guess this is ok. Do you use the default /etc/apt/sources.list, or did you modify it?

ChrisZ 4th January 2013 14:37

Good to know. :)

I left the default sources.list in place.

Code:

# deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
