    i followed the awesome howto on "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)" ... and with no error msgs along the way, until page 4...

    [email protected]:/usr/local/sbin# telnet localhost 25
    Connected to localhost.localdomain.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
    ehlo localhost

    and then terminal locked and this was in syslog and kept looping:

    Jan 20 13:56:04 srvr2 postfix/proxymap[9334]: fatal: dict_open: unsupported dictionary type: /mysql: Is the postfix-/mysql package installed?
    Jan 20 13:56:05 srvr2 postfix/smtpd[8932]: warning: private/proxymap socket: service dict_proxy_open: Success
    Jan 20 13:56:05 srvr2 postfix/master[8553]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/proxymap pid 9334 exit status 1
    Jan 20 13:56:05 srvr2 postfix/master[8553]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/proxymap: bad command startup -- throttling

    i have postfix-mysql installed. and have gone over the setup and am at a loss. any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
