    I am at step 15 on the ubuntu perfect server tutorial but when I go from

    "In order to install Postfix with SMTP-AUTH and TLS do the following steps:

    apt-get install postfix libsasl2-2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules procmail

    You will be asked two questions. Answer as follows:

    General type of mail configuration: <-- Internet Site
    System mail name: <-- server1.example.com"

    to

    "Then run

    dpkg-reconfigure postfix

    Again, you'll be asked some questions:

    General type of mail configuration: <-- Internet Site
    System mail name: <-- server1.example.com
    Root and postmaster mail recipient: <-- [blank]
    Other destinations to accept mail for (blank for none): <-- server1.example.com, localhost.example.com, localhost.localdomain, localhost
    Force synchronous updates on mail queue? <-- No
    Local networks: <-- 127.0.0.0/8
    Use procmail for local delivery? <-- Yes
    Mailbox size limit (bytes): <-- 0
    Local address extension character: <-- +
    Internet protocols to use: <-- all"

    Insted of being asked the questions laid out above I get this message instead

    "/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: postfix is broken or not fully installed."

    Anyone have any ideas on this?

    When was the first time you noticed that apt threw this error at you?

    It gave me the error on install. I have been told to re-install it from a friend but I dont know how to uninstall it first.
