Im totally lost in here could somebody help me ? I have running postfix and
ived just installed Mailscanner with the procedure on this links
http://www.sng.ecs.soton.ac.uk/mailscanner/install/postfix.shtml, how come
when i executed this command :
        Start the incoming Postfix
        postfix -c /etc/postfix.in start
        Start the outgoing Postfix
        postfix -c /etc/postfix start
        Start MailScanner

I have this error logs " Mar  5 08:21:51 mail postfix/postfix-script: fatal:

Any help is much appreciated.
