7.5 Install the Postfix RPM

So now we're finally ready to do the installation. Here's how:

    [root@ntbox /root]# rpm -Uvh postfix-19990906_pl06-1.i586.rpm 
    postfix ################################################## 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix pid directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix incoming directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix active directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix bounce directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix defer directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix deferred directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix saved directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix corrupt directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix public directory 
    postfix-script: warning: creating missing Postfix private directory 
    [root@ntbox /root]#
    

Just like that we're done. Now we need to configure the thing.
