Fail to start postfix


Hi folks,

CentOS 4.4 server amd64

Failed to start postfix

# /etc/init.d/postfix start
Code:
Starting postfix:                                          [FAILED]
# /etc/init.d/saslauthd restart
Code:
Stopping saslauthd:                                        [  OK  ]
Starting saslauthd:                                        [  OK  ]
Pls advise where to check and how to fix the problem. TIA


Edit:

# cat /var/log/messages | tail
Code:

Solved

Hi folks,

I got my problem fixed.

Many long statement on /etc/postfix/main.cf were pushed to next line causing crash. They did not wrap. After fixed all of them manually postfix started.

Tks.
