Default Ubuntu 8.04 - Problem after step 9 with Postfix - SOLVED


I removed empty line after inet n - - - - smtpd and restarted Postfix, but still had the same error.

Following your admonition to carefully follow the tutorial, I examined the file more carefully and noticed that the continuation lines following "amavis unix - - - - 2 smtp" and " inet n - - - - smtpd" did not include any whitespace at their beginnings; e.g. "-o content_filter=" instead of " -o content_filter=". This happened as I cut and pasted from the tutorial while in an ssh putty window on a Windows XP workstation. I reviewed the Man Pages for Postfix and verified that the whitespace must be at the beginning of continuation lines. After fixing these errors in, restarting Postfix and rerunning netstat -tap, all is working as expected. I consider this issue closed and will continue with installing my "Virtual Users and Domains . . . .8.04).

Thank you for your guidance and patience. I am an experienced MS Server administrator, but I am a very new ubuntu/linux newbie. I appreciate your help and tutorials very much.
