    Hi,

    Following the perfect setup (bind & dovecot) at the end of installation I saw that message

    Code:
    Stopping amavisd: amavisd-new.
    head: cannot open `/etc/mailname' for reading: No such file or directory
    Starting amavisd: amavisd-new.
    Digging a bit on this site I found that the Multiserver setup on debian had this line

    Code:
    echo mail.example.tld > /etc/hostname
    [B]echo mail.example.tld > /etc/mailname[/B]
    /etc/init.d/hostname.sh start
    Is it mandatory. Do I have to reinstall ISPConfig after addind this line.

    Thanks

    You dont have to reinstall ispconfig after setting the mailname, just restart amavisd. Every step in the tutorial is mandatory if you want to get a working setup.

    /etc/mailname is created by the apt installer automatically when you install postfix, so there is no separate command needed for that as the file gets created automatically on debian.
