Postfix Error message in mail.log


I am trying to get Postfix working with my Debian box. I am getting the following error message in /var/log/mail.log :

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this.

Thanks in Advance,

Edit /etc/aliases and then run 'newaliases'. Also, correct syntax errors in /etc/postfix/master.cf. When done, run 'postfix reload'.
