I am just trying to set up postfix on a newly installed sarge machine.

When I do a postfix reload after editing I get the following error

could someone here please be kind enough to point me in the right

with many thanks
With what editor did you edit the configuration files ?
How did you install postifx ? from the deb package or built it from
installed from package on dvd
Have you tried taking this up in the Postfix mail group ?
Also post the postconf -n ouput
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
command_directory = /usr/sbin
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/lib/postfix
inet_interfaces = all
local_recipient_maps = unix:passwd.byname $alias_maps
mail_spool_directory = /var/mail
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
mynetworks_style = subnet
myorigin = $mydomain
recipient_delimiter = +
relayhost = smtp.btclick.com
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
thanks for your prompt reply
