Default Perfect Server Edgy - install courier-authdaemon

I am on page 5 of the Perfect server HowTo and when I get to the step

Run this to install Courier-IMAP/Courier-IMAP-SSL (for IMAPs on port 993) and Courier-POP3/Courier-POP3-SSL (for POP3s on port 995):
Quote:
apt-get install courier-authdaemon courier-base courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl courier-ssl gamin libgamin0 libglib2.0-0
I get a failure message saying
Quote:
E: Couldn't find package courier-authdaemon
Any thoughts or workarounds that I could use? I tried just not choosing the authdaemon package but none of the other courier packages will work either.

Just for background purposes I am an expert in Windows but a total novice in Linux so dont be afraid to spell something out or talk to me like im in first grade because as far as Linux servers are concerned I am in first grade.


Thanks for all your help!

I just tried uncommenting all the sources and then rebooting but got the same error message.

Courier resides in the universe repository. Uncomment (remove the # sign) of the lines with universe (4 lines). Then retry.

Execute
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
after uncommenting. Rebooting has no effect whatsoever. It's not sw from Redm....

I've got another question about the server. I can send email just fine but I cant seem to access email. When I send it to the address it does not kick back instantly which it did before I fixed my mx record but I get an error involving sending the password.

Quote:
Error sending password: -ERR chdir Maildir failed
I know this is just a setting in a file but im stuck.

Thanks

Did you configure Postfix to deliver emails to Maildir instead of mbox?

I have run the following commands
Quote:
postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart
I tried to check mail before and after I ran those commands and neither worked.

I thought at first mail was not failing but I had a dns registration error so it was waiting a long time before sending the failures but now if I send an email to my domain it immediately comes back with a failure

Quote:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 554 5.7.1 <ben@*****.com>: Relay access denied
When I try to check the mail on the linux server I get the Unable to connect to POP server server.*****.com Error sending password: Broken pipe

***** is in place of my domain



Edit
