    Hi

    i follow this tutorial Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)

    and my error is appear when i try to modify alias file in /etc/aliases by adding :

    [...]
    postmaster: root
    root: postmaster@localdomain.tld
    [...]


    and before i edit the file i found this config for Calmv antivirus
    # Added by installer for initial user
    root: ad
    clamav: root

    My question is

    What is postmaster ?
    And this error after typing newalises command
    postalias: warning: /etc/aliases, line 1: need name:value pair
    postalias: warning: /etc/aliases, line 9: need name:value pair
    postalias: warning: /etc/aliases.db: duplicate entry: "root"


    Regards

    Comment out or delete the
    Code:
    root: ad
    line and remove all empty lines from the file, then run
    Code:
    newaliases
    and restart Postfix.
