Hello!

I'm trying to setup a postfix installation in Debian.

In the first attempt, I skipped by mistake the initial configuration screen, and I want to re-run it.

I run

Code:
dpkg-reconfigure postfix

then it shows the initial config screen with the options to choose from. However, I can't move with the keys and can't choose any option.

Then I try to reinstall it. If I make this:

Code:
dpkg -P postfix

It comes with dependency problems:
Code:
 mailutils depends on default-mta | mail-transport-agent; however:
  Package default-mta is not installed.
  Package exim4-daemon-light which provides default-mta is not installed.
  Package mail-transport-agent is not installed.
  Package postfix which provides mail-transport-agent is to be removed.
  Package exim4-daemon-light which provides mail-transport-agent is not installed.

¿how is that these packages where not installed alongside with postfix and the initial setup didn't complain?

¿What am I doing wrong?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You don't need to rerun that to configure postfix, you can just edit /etc/postfix/main.cf.
