    I'm trying to follow the instructions from "The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1) - Page 4" (http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_sarge_p4)

    When I enter the command:
    Code:
    apt-get install postfix postfix-tls libsasl2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules ipopd-ssl uw-imapd-ssl
    I am getting:
    Code:
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    libsasl2 is already the newest version.
    E: Couldn't find package uw-imapd-sll
    db3196212:~# apt-get install postfix postfix-tls libsasl2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules ipopd-ssl uw-imapd-ssl
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    libsasl2 is already the newest version.
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      libsasl2-2: Conflicts: postfix (< 2.3.4-3) but 2.1.5-9 is to be installed
      libsasl2-modules: Depends: libsasl2 (= 2.1.19.dfsg1-0sarge2) but 2.1.22.dfsg1-8~bpo.1 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    

    I'm brand spanking new to this, so I have no idea where to go from here. I mean, that's why I'm following a howto. :) Can anyone help me out? I guess something has a new dependency or something...

    What's your version of debian? stable or testing.

    Have you change stable by testing in the file /etc/apt/sources.list?

    You have a conflit bitween your version of postfix and sasl2.

    Sarge stable.

    I added a backports repository, that's the only change I've made to my sources.list.

    I actually got through this step by just installing each of the packages one at a time. Is that different than having them all on the same command line?

    I don't understand why it would work differently if it was the same, maybe I screwed things up, I dunno.

    After you added the backports repository, did you do
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    ? And does the output show, there is nothing to upgrade left?
