    [SOLVED] How to install Postfix on Ununtu 10.10


    I am trying to install postfix but i'm having problems

    I run this command

    sudo apt-get install postfix
    and it downloads, does something else and in the terminal window I see a list of options and OK at the bottom.

    The problem is becuase it opens in a terminal window, i can't select an option. It is like a picture and nothing else.

    I've read loads of instructions and they all say to choose an option but i haven't got a choice.

    How can i get postfix to install so i can make a selection?

    Would it be worth using Synaptics and if so what packages do i download?

    Just noticed, the package configuration screen is nothing like i've seen on other sites with how-tos. The screen I get shows a description and there is no cancel option

    Post back with the details should you continue to have issues getting it working.
