Thanks, Eero, I know that should be the first step always! It turns out that:
Oct 17 23:12:47 mercury postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system
Oct 17 23:12:47 mercury postfix/master[30770]: fatal: bind
port 25: Address already in use

Which led me to:
[root at mercury log]# netstat -anp --tcp --udp | grep LISTEN | grep 25
tcp        0      0      *
     LISTEN      2870/exim

Stopping exim let me start postfix. Thanks!
