dpkg-query command line should specify postfix, not mc (page 148)

In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 148:

The example displaying the use of the --showformat option to dpkg-query should obviously be:

# dpkg-query --show --showformat='${Package}\t${Status}\n' postfix
postfix install ok installed

In the book, it unfortunately specifies mc as the last argument in the command line. I had previously used mc as an example, but switched almost all examples over to postfix as a tribute to my favourite mail server, and its author, Wietse Venema.
