Mail Server Configuration - Help!
« on: June 18, 2006, 04:54:56 AM »
Hi all :)

I'm setting my webmin server to send/receive emails.

I use this tutorial:

Could someone tell me what the 3rd part of the 11th step mean?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now we need to set postfix as the MTA ... do this:

alternatives --config mta

... select postfix (on my setup the number 1)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I do not know what it means.  "do this: alternatives --config mta"

Thanks in advance for your help :D

from those directions, it would seem that you need to put the alternatives --config mta in the file named /usr/lib/sasl2/smtpd.conf



(Thanks Daniel)
