If you use CentOSPlus you need to exclude packages you don't want from
there.  The postfix from CentOSPlus is one that uses mysql or pgsql to
hold things like the alias files and other postfix items in databases.
You need to configure postfix to use mysql (or pgsql) if you install the
postfix from the CentOSPlus repository.

If you want to use the normal postfix (and not the database enabled one)
then exclude=postfix* in the CentOSPlus repo setup and remove postfix,
then reinstall it ... it will then install the normal one from the base

See this info on how to setup CentOSPlus:
