Question A VERY newbie question on Postfix

I installed mandrake yesterday and I'm trying to set up the Postfix SMTP server. I've read the doucmentation on Postfix included with the Mandrake 9.0 distro...

I ran urpmi postfix to install postfix but it told me it's already installed and running.

Well then I went to the next step in the manual. Configuring Postfix through it's webbased user console. Problem is they forgot to mention how to get to the web interface of postfix. I use KDE 3. Is it a certain http: command? I tried localhost but that brought up the apache server.

Someone please help, and hopefully this is one of the easiest questions you've had to answer.

I discovered the solution after only 3 more hours of documentation! :-)

For anyone that wants to know, the GUI to Postfix can be downloaded from, installed with the rpm -U <filename> command, and then configured through http://localhost.localdomain:10000/
