    hi!

    first of all, let me thank for this howto!

    second, I'd like to make some comments, regarding the installation with help of this howto.

    Code:
    apt-get install wget bzip2 rdate fetchmail libdb3++-dev unzip zip ncftp xlispstat libarchive-zip-perl zlib1g-dev libpopt-dev nmap openssl lynx fileutils
    my first trouble started here...it states, that it cannot find libdb3++-dev and xlispstat....I just recently discovered, that there are 14(!!) sarge install cd images available and I only downloaded 4....now how could I add the rest of them as installation sources (I already downloaded the missing images....)?

    then, when I issue the command
    Code:
    apt-get install postfix postfix-tls libsasl2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules ipopd-ssl uw-imapd-ssl
    I get this:
    which means the dependencies could not be solves, and exim4-base depends on exim4-config, but it should not be installed, or exim4-config-2 and E: damaged packages (?).

    so this is the place, where I am stuck, as I don't have a clue how to solve this. I am new to Debian, but have been using SuSE for ages....

    as far, as I have figured it out, I need mysql (but it depends on exim4) and postgres (which again "forbids" the installation of exim4)....

    can somebody give me a hint how to go on from here?

    thanks in advance,
    bbking

    oh, well, my fault...:(

    can I change this somehow (e.g. editing the /etc/apt-sources file)? btw, while installation, the system did access the net, at least security.debian.org was contacted for each package.....

    thanks & have a nice day,
    bbking

    Put this into /etc/apt/sources.list:

    Code:
    deb http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ stable main
    deb-src http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ stable main
    
    deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
    and run
    Code:
    apt-get update

    thanks a lot!

    with inserting these extra sources, my exim4 problems disappeared, too! I finished the installation without problems....

    one quick question: when I set

    postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_auth_only = no'

    to yes, then only secure authentication will work, right? no plain passwords are allowed, whereas setting it to "no", plain passwords will work?

    I'm not sure about this, but I'd like to only have secure passwords....

    thanks for the HOWTO one more time!

    Plain text passwords will still work; TLS means that the connection is encrypted. It's like HTTPS for web sites.

    Are you using Etch or Sarge? If you use Sarge, please replace stable with sarge in /etc/apt/sources.list and run
    Code:
    apt-get update
