I want to send mail from a local server. I tried to install

sudo apt-get install postfix

but it showed this error

Failed to fetch http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/postfix/postfix

Please help me to enable SMTP in Ubuntu.


The archive is incorrect. I should read http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/postfix

To correct the problem: From terminal gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list this will open the text editor and you can correct the offending line.

Make the entry as above^^
