Default The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (Ubuntu 7.04)

I'm currently on step 13, which is: 13 Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS.

After configuring postfix/main.cf and trying to restart it, I received the error

postfix: fatal: /etc/mailname: unable to open: cannot open file: No such file or directory

I figured the next logical step would to do a mkdir /etc/mailname (and it obviously wasn't). I went ahead and made the directory, tried to restart postfix, and then got the error:

postfix: fatal: /etc/mailname: unable to open: file has 2 hard links

Is there any way for me to solve this problem? Thanks!

Can you post /etc/postfix/main.cf? And the output of
postconf -d|grep myorigin
