    Hi All,

    I am going through the installation of postfix as per the following how-to:

    The install seems to have been going fine up until I got to step9 to install amavisd-new, SpamAssassin, And ClamAV....

    Below is the link to the page:

    After running the following command:
    apt-get install amavisd-new spamassassin clamav clamav-daemon zoo unzip bzip2 unzoo libnet-ph-perl libnet-snpp-perl libnet-telnet-perl nomarch lzop pax
    I get the following errors for the above command: (Truncated)
    Starting amavisd: [B]No listen sockets or ports specified
    invoke-rc.d: initscript amavis, action "start" [B]failed.[/B]
    [B]dpkg: error processing amavisd-new (--configure):[/B]
     subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Setting up unzoo (4.4-5) ...
    [B]Errors were encountered while processing:[/B]
    [B]E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)[/B]
    FYI, durring the install of the how-to I captured everything to a file. Going through the captured file I have noticed the following errors before the one reported above. Below are snippets of errors encountered during the install.

    Error below was generated after running command step2
    WARNING: /etc/aliases exists, but does not have a root alias.

    Falko, yes I did apply the aliases as required... Below is what I did for the that step - I just changed below to my domain name...
    postmaster: root

    Falko, per my last reply below, I was wondering if I need to install gcc. I notice the gcc related errors/warning messages as shown in my output. Also, I am wondering about the error msg referring to gpg. Would I need gpg installed?

    Install build-essential: apt-get install build-essential
    It contains everything you need to compile things from the sources.
    You can ignore these warnings.

    Falko, I tried to do a re-install of the postfix and hit the same issue. As before, build-essential is installed... Again, I've hit this error message below
    mx1:/etc/postfix# adduser clamav amavis
    Adding user `clamav' to group `amavis' ...
    mx1:/etc/postfix# /etc/init.d/amavis restart
    Stopping amavisd:[B] (not running).[/B]
    Starting amavisd: [B]No listen sockets or ports specified
    I am not sure why I getting the above error - Any thoughtts/suggestions?

    I think there's a problem with your amavisd configuration. Please compare it to the one from the tutorial. Maybe you accidentally deleted parts of the configuration?
