Thanks for the quick reply.  Your email arrived at the same time as my

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog) currently uses Postfix 2.1.5.  From what
you said, this will not require the new files.

I will follow the intructions in the Postfix guide and post my
experience to the list.

BTW, I am giving a presentation tomorrow (Saturday) to my Linux user
group on setting up an email server with Mailscanner.  I appreciate any
help that can be provided before then.  :)

Put simply, no. Just adjust the MailScanner.conf file for Postfix
the directions you have found (Check to see which version of Postfix
have installed, if it's 2.2.x then you will need some new files to
accommodate the slight change in queue structure (Post back and I'll
point you in the right direction)). I don't know how old the
version is in the unstable tree, so it would be worth check that also.
