Exclamation

allso when running

Code:
chmod 666 /var/lib/named/dev/null /var/lib/named/dev/random
from the section

Quote:
Make null and random devices, and fix permissions of the directories:

Code:
mknod /var/lib/named/dev/null c 1 3
mknod /var/lib/named/dev/random c 1 8
chmod 666 /var/lib/named/dev/null /var/lib/named/dev/random
chown -R bind:bind /var/lib/named/var/*
chown -R bind:bind /var/lib/named/etc/bind
I get the following error

directory

That is zlib1g-dev - zed ell eye bee one gee, not ell gee.

Regarding your second error, just prior to that the instructions
mkdir /var/lib/named/dev
create the /var/lib/named/dev folder, then the mknod instructions create the null and random devices in that folder. I suggest you check if they exist. If not, repeat until they do.

To install zlib1g-dev, simply type the following when logged in as root

apt-get install zlib1g-dev

where the fifth character of the name is the number 1 (one) not lowercase L (ell).

Typo on the page? Not on my copy of the Internet. 'ramdom' is useless to you, it must be 'random' , so recreate them.

Create a mail account, either with ISPConfig, or if you don't want to install ISPConfig, like this: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2
Afterwards you can test with Evolution (sending/receiving).

Question

Cool, I dont have to start work till later

So I gave it ago, but I think some thing is wrong

/etc/postfix/local-host-names I dont seem to have that file

or this file /etc/postfix/virtusertable

Code:
root@rockinghamgateway:/etc/postfix# ls
dynamicmaps.cf  main.cf  master.cf  postfix-files  postfix-script  post-install  prng_exch  sasl  ssl

Here is what I typed in on the command line

Code:
root@rockinghamgateway:~# useradd -d /home/tommytomato -g users tommytomato
root@rockinghamgateway:~# passwd tommytomato
Enter new UNIX password: 
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
root@rockinghamgateway:~# postconf -e 'virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable'
root@rockinghamgateway:~# postconf -e 'mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names'
root@rockinghamgateway:~# postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
postmap: fatal: open /etc/postfix/virtusertable: No such file or directory
Post fix seem to start ok

Code:
root@rockinghamgateway:~# /etc/init.d/postfix restart
 * Stopping Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                                      [ ok ] 
 * Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                                      [ ok ] 
root@rockinghamgateway:~#
Have I missed some thing along the way

Evolution gives me this error
