Default Postfix: connection refused error

Dear All,

Please I need help. My postfix server gives the following error when client system on the LAN try to send out mail. ¨delivery temporary suspended: connect to 127.0.0.1 [127.0.0.1]: connection refused¨.
Mails been pulled by fetchmail are not been delivered to clients and outgoing mails are not delivered either. I can do telnet localhost 25 and get the following.


[root@mandriva ~]# telnet mandriva.amlbti.lan 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to mandriva.amlbti.lan (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.

Default

What are the outputs of
Code:
netstat -tap
and
Code:
uname -a
? Does /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd (not /usr/lib64/postfix/smtpd) exist?
