This is a different problem. Try searching the archives of the
postfix-users mailing list. This kind of problem goes back at least

found that might be relevant to your case are at
Or just Google for "postfix bad command startup", and follow the links.

I think that this is unrelated to the postfix problem above.

Search the Mailm FAQ Wizard for "performance". But pay special
attention to FAQ 1.24.
