I uninstalled postfix, and put it back in, this all went away.  I  
would like to know what caused this, and how to avoid it.  These are  
often going to be production servers, and things like this happening  
would be bad.  If I know what is going on, I can prepare for them and  
make sure I do not mess up alone the way.
