I changed in /etc/postfix/master.cf
Code:
smtp      inet  n       -       y    -       100     smtpd
Code:
# ls /var/spool/postfix
active  corrupt  deferred  flush  incoming  maildrop  private    public  trace  var
bounce  defer    etc       hold   lib       pid       prng_exch  saved   usr
and now it seems to work.

my line is as follows:

Code:
smtp      inet  n       -       -       -       -       smtpd -v
per the link I gave, which works. I thought the default was yes so the 'y' was not needed. Could be mistaken.
