Continual install failure of -- High-performance mail transport agent6 postfix(Size: 1.3MB)--- I believe this is also affecting my ability to stay connected to my mail accounts. How do I fix this? This is my home computer.

Here is the error msg:

InstallArchives() failed: Setting up postfix (2.9.3-2~12.04.3) ...

Postfix configuration was not changed.  If you need to make changes, edit
/etc/postfix/main.cf (and others) as needed.  To view Postfix configuration
values, see postconf(1).

After modifying main.cf, be sure to run '/etc/init.d/postfix reload'.
