First hit. go #postfix stop to stop any current processes.
Then make sure that is correct then go #postfix -c 
/etc/ start (Or stop then start if it's running already). Try 
telneting to your local host #telnet 25. If you get a 
response, then #postfix -c /etc/postfix start and also start MailScanner 
(if it's not running). Keep checking the logs and post any error messages.
