Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report.

Per the log message above it appears that amavis needs the FQDN set. If you
set this it should be able to start properly.

Since it seems likely to me that this is a local configuration problem,
rather than a bug in Ubuntu, I am marking this bug as 'Incomplete'.

However, if you believe that this is really a bug in Ubuntu, then we would
be grateful if you would provide a more complete description of the problem
with steps to reproduce, explain why you believe this is a bug in Ubuntu
rather than a problem specific to your system, and then change the bug
status back to "New".

For local configuration issues, you can find assistance here:

Changed in amavisd-new (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
