    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...

    root@server1:/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.
