Default Need help with Postfix Install

Hi All,

I am going through the installation of postfix as per the following how-to:

The install seems to have been going fine up until I got to step9 to install amavisd-new, SpamAssassin, And ClamAV....

Below is the link to the page:

After running the following command:
apt-get install amavisd-new spamassassin clamav clamav-daemon zoo unzip bzip2 unzoo libnet-ph-perl libnet-snpp-perl libnet-telnet-perl nomarch lzop pax
I get the following errors for the above command: (Truncated)
Starting amavisd: No listen sockets or ports specified
invoke-rc.d: initscript amavis, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing amavisd-new (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Setting up unzoo (4.4-5) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
FYI, durring the install of the how-to I captured everything to a file. Going through the captured file I have noticed the following errors before the one reported above. Below are snippets of errors encountered during the install.

Error below was generated after running command step2
WARNING: /etc/aliases exists, but does not have a root alias.
