Your preseed.cfg is misformatted:

joey@dragon:~>debconf-set-selections < preseed.cfg
error: parse error on line 267: 'ent and received directly using SMTP'
zsh: exit 1     debconf-set-selections < preseed.cfg

This appears to be a simple line wrap mistake. Note that preseed is much
less picky about this than debconf-set-selections, since it's
implemented in a much less capable language where checking everything
that debconf-set-selections does would be hard.
