I got postfix to install properly into my ezjail setup but now iI'm getting the following:

Code:
Sep 16 08:38:17 mta postfix/smtpd[74329]: fatal: open dictionary: expecting "type:name" form instead of "/etc/mail/aliases"
Sep 16 08:38:18 mta postfix/master[64029]: warning: process /usr/local/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 74329 exit status 1
Sep 16 08:38:18 mta postfix/master[64029]: warning: /usr/local/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

Sep 16 08:39:09 mta postfix/master[64029]: warning: /usr/local/libexec/postfix/local: bad command startup -- throttling
Sep 16 08:39:19 mta postfix/smtpd[74331]: fatal: open dictionary: expecting "type:name" form instead of "/etc/mail/aliases"

Sep 16 08:39:20 mta postfix/master[64029]: warning: /usr/local/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

Doing some research I need to add a virtual alias map, is that correct?

root@mta:~ # postconf -e 'virtual_alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual'
root@mta:~ # postmap /usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual
postmap: fatal: open /usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual: No such file or directory
root@mta:~ #


What am I doing wrong?
