Default postfix installtion- ubuntu 5.10 (isp server setup)

hello all,

i am a new user here at howtoforge. i have begun installing a ubuntu server and have reached this page > http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_5.10_p4

i have currently installed postfix and when i get to this step:

"Now we have to edit /etc/default/saslauthd in order to activate saslauthd. Remove # in front of START=yes and add the line PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd""

the files he asks to use are not present. when i open up the editor it opens blanks pages.

i have also skipped the dhcp configuration because i will not be needing the feature. (could this is the route of the problem?)

thank you

If the file /etc/default/saslauthd is not present, you did not install sasl with the command:

Quote:
apt-get install postfix postfix-tls libsasl2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules libdb3-util procmail

ok after running that command i get the following message:

You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package postfix-tls has no installtion candidate.

I have tried typing it several times and I still receive the same message.
