Sorry if I missed that, by the way thanks to all who
reply. I already get the points of using Yum and will
uninstall the already installed postfix from the
source using checkinstall as advise from the other
lists and will use Yum instead. Thanks again.

suggest you 
with a search through the achieves.

short answer: use yum ( which in turn uses rpm ).
