Sorry to reply to my own post but I forgot to say you probably want to
use --dry-run on the apt-get commands to see what they will do before
invoking them. If they do what you wanted them to do invoke apt-get
without --dry-run. This should minimise any problems.
And backup /etc/apt/preferences before you edit it.
So if you have /etc/apt/preferences do:
> cp /etc/apt/preferences /etc/apt/preferences.bakN
(where N is a number to make the file unique).
> Package: postfix
> Pin: release a=dapper-backports
> Pin-Priority: -10
(or remove backports from your sources list).
> apt-get update
> apt-get --dry-run install postfix/dapper-security
if it says it would have installed the version you want do:
> apt-get install postfix/dapper-security
> apt-get --dry-run upgrade
If it says it wouldn't have done anything then everything worked.
DO NOT run apt-get upgrade, it may update things you didn't want updated.
Computers are like air conditioners. Both stop working, if you open windows.
