Default Mail server configuration issue

Hi, this is my first post, I´m new both in the forum and in server administration :P
I was following the steps on how to configure a mail server and got stacked here... (allready installed mysql....) (Full Mail Server Solution w/ Virtual Domains & Users - Page 02 (MySQL & NFS))
Following this scheme and replacing user and admin and respective passwords, it got messed like this:
# mysql -uroot -p
Enter password:
mysql> CREATE DATABASE virtual_mail;
mysql> GRANT SELECT ON virtual_mail.* TO 'vmail_user'@'mx-1.example.com' IDENTIFIED BY 'vmail_user_password';
mysql> GRANT SELECT,UPDATE,INSERT ON virtual_mail.* TO 'vmail_admin'@'mx-1.example.com' IDENTIFIED BY 'vmail_admin_password'; (here after i insert admin´s password i get in the following line , this arrow)
-> (and I don´t know what to do!! :P)
I would appreciate any help ... I know this must be a silly question.... sorry for this. Thanks again

You ran
Code:
mysql> GRANT SELECT,UPDATE,INSERT ON virtual_mail.* TO 'vmail_admin'@'mx-1.example.com' IDENTIFIED BY 'vmail_admin_password';
and then you entered a password?

Try
Code:
wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/postfixadmin/postfixadmin-2.2.1.1.tar.gz
or if you want the .deb package:
Code:
wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/postfixadmin/postfixadmin_2.2.1.1_all.deb
