hmm..getting the same problem here.

I did an apt-get install webmin, which upgraded a few files....at the end of the webmin install it told me that there was an error with amavis...

apt-get install amavis

the strange thing here is...i looked in the /etc/amavis for the amavis.conf file...there was nothing. i had a backup which i copied back...but still not working.

/etc/init.d/amavis restart
Stopping amavisd: (not running).
Starting amavisd: Found incompatible config file flag!
Due to safety concerns, amavisd-new will not be started.
Refer to /usr/share/doc/amavisd-new/README.Debian for instructions.

i have gone though all the above advice....still nothing?

hi. just to let you know, i fixed it.

If you have tried to upgrade amavis to newer version which is now amavis-new it breaks amavis.

at the time of apt-get install amavis, the install takes /etc/amavis/amavis.conf or /etc/amavis.conf and renames it to amavis.conf.disabled

the install then fails asking you to read more about the changes.

simply rename the amavis.conf.disabled to amavis.conf.WHATEVER and remove the amavis.conf.disabled file.

then run the apt-get install amavis again, and it will complete the install fine.

start amavis if needed,

hope this helps you
