Default Postfix Alias Error

Hi

i follow this tutorial Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)

and my error is appear when i try to modify alias file in /etc/aliases by adding :

[...]
postmaster: root
root: postmaster@localdomain.tld
[...]


and before i edit the file i found this config for Calmv antivirus
# Added by installer for initial user
root: ad
clamav: root

My question is

What is postmaster ?
And this error after typing newalises command
postalias: warning: /etc/aliases, line 1: need name:value pair
postalias: warning: /etc/aliases, line 9: need name:value pair
postalias: warning: /etc/aliases.db: duplicate entry: "root"


Regards

Comment out or delete the
Code:
root: ad
line and remove all empty lines from the file, then run
Code:
newaliases
and restart Postfix.
