Default Ubuntu 9.04 [ISPConfig 3] - Step 12: Broken packages: sendmail, rmail

Hi all,

I'm working on a virtual server under OpenVZ and installing the packages described in Step 12, and aptitude is telling me that two packages are broken: rmail sendmail

It offers a couple of alternatives, if I choose not to accept its solution, but they all leave postfix uninstalled.

root@www:/# aptitude install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-doc mysql-client mysql-server courier-authdaemon courier-authlib-mysql courier-pop courier-pop-ssl courier-imap courier-imap-ssl libsasl2-2 libsasl2-modules libsasl2-modules-sql sasl2-bin libpam-mysql openssl maildrop getmail4 rkhunter binutils
