Which one is line 9 ?

I asked in the #postfix IRC channel:
<cannonball> He's supposed to be putting those in instead of, right?
<lunaphyte_> cannonball: it's unlikely that smtpd_milters and
non_smtpd_milters would be appropriate in, but
milter_default_action and milter_protocol certainly can be.

So it's possible you're putting them in the wrong place, but that's
just a guess on my part. Steve might be able to offer more insight
into it since he seems to run postfix.
