Postfix starts up everything that is needed. It doesn't have separate
commands that you need to start for queues to work, thats just silly.
With postfix, we specify a rule to put all incoming mail in the hold
queue, which mailscanner scans and then transfers to postfix incoming
queue, where postfix picks it up and sends it on its way.
