# trust's allow signing keys:
wget -O - |sudo apt-key add -
# ... OR ...
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/

# get list
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
sudo wget

# Optinalls switch to https:
sudo sed -e 's/http:/https:/g' -i any-postfixadmin-3.1.list

# pull repo content
sudo apt-get update

apt-get install postfixadmin
