What have you done to try to remedy the situation? I am on the postfix 
list, and have not seen a single message from you about the problem. 
They are very knowledgeable people there - but you will need to be very 
specific with your problem description, and provide postconf -n output 
and logs of the errors...

Reinstalling would be silly at this point. Fix the problem. From your 
vague description, it sounds like a hardware problem.

Things never break 'for no reason'...
