Installation of .tgz files


When we install some package using .tgz files, the debian package
mechanism is not aware that the particular package is installed. 
For ex. I installed postfix*.tgz but apt is unaware of it. 
Therefore, when I use apt-get for installilng something else,
it would say, MTA not installed and it would try to install one.

Is there any way to fix it so that I can still enjoy apt-get install?
