DCgmail missing postfix installing

Post#1 » Sat Oct 26, 2019 2:29 am

so I followed the instructions on to install the DCgmail thing and it says missing postfix installing. What exactly does that mean? is it supposed to take so long?

I'm not sure what all you did but maybe you put the file in wrong folder maybe? After installing dreampi image I put the sd back in and drag and drop the dcgmail.sh then installed it. If it breaks on install you may have put it in a bad location or maybe bad file transfer?

Re download, and copy over to root and try installing again

Does it halt or? I added "[This may take a while]" just because it takes some time to rebuild the apt repo during the installation of packages.

It doesn't go in a folder, it should be in root level.

The root means no directory, so right into F:\ E:\ etcetc whatever letter's assigned
