Default Postfix Spam Filter using Ubuntu Dapper, MailScanner and ClamAV(beta)

I AM A NEW LINUX USER, I HAVE NEVER TOUCHED IT BEFORE...I AM USING UBUNTU 6.06

i have followed everything in the tutorial but i am stuck as to wondering where the mailscanner and amavis programs are to be installed, it also references the user "amavis" but i don't see anywhere that there is some kind of a user that is created that is called "amavis" and in the last paragragh on the last page when you run the command it asks for "uid amavis" but i don't remember creating the user "amavis" and when i delete this from the command it runs correctly but with it there i get a "invalid user" error, is there a page missing before page 4 or something? any help is well appreciated

This is a free forum, you can expect to get answer within ten minutes. But be assured that we read your posts and try to help you. If you need fast and professional support, you can contact us under info@projektfarm.de (but of course, we charge for this kind of support).

What's the output of
Code:
grep amavis /etc/passwd
?

Ok, then the user exists, you don't have to create it anymore.

Testing is covered here: http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po...ota_courier_p5
Just create a few email addresses and send and receive messages, and check if errors occur.

@H8LinuxLOL - amavid-new should not install, MailScanner and Amavids-new basically do the same thing, you should not have them both on the same system.

I will be updating the documentation this coming week, I posted it as beta becaus it was more of a post for personal reference and I didn't think it would get much attention.
