Hello, thanks for taking time out of your schedule to read and hopefully help me with my issue.

When I use the automatic installer for mail-in-a-box I run into this error

Errors were encountered while processing:
spampd
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This was completed on a fresh ubuntu 14.04 minimum install on a vps with 3gb of ram, I have also google'd around for a while not finding any fixes for this issue.

If any of you have any suggestions, please share them below. Also if you would like more of the error, or some error logs just ask.

Thanks

It seems you already have spampd installed. I'd start with that. Also, look at the logs for any other issues.
