Setting up postfix to use is it a good idea?

Hello. You are getting this error because your Postfix lacks support for the
Berkeley DBM database format. To see a list of all currently supported map
types, run postconf -m as root. Assuming you do not see dbm listed in the
output, you will need to install Postfix with DBM support, by doing so using the
method (s) put in place via your distro. Hope this helps somewhat.
