Hi
I m using FC7. Just before I try to installl postfix-pflogsumm.i386 2:2.4.3-2.fc7 for mail analysing. thats why I upgrade my postfix to postfix-2.4.3-2.fc7.i386.rpm

when i try to install it say..

[root@Server1 Fedora_7]# rpm -ivh postfix-2.4.3-2.fc7.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package postfix-2.4.3-2.fc7 is already installed
When i run the command .. the output is..

Try removing the package (which does not appear to be fully/properly installed:

Code:
rpm -e postfix
Then re-install with yum:

Code:
yum install postfix postfix-pflogsumm
