Default No output from /etc/init.d/postfix start Postfix

Hi All,

i try to run postfix version postfix-2.3.3-6 already installed on my CentOS 5.6 server , but it shows FAILED msg when i use this command
HTML Code:
/etc/init.d/postfix start

Ok i tried to unveil the source of problem with /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages but for the first one it says no such file in directory and for the second command another msg says that the permission is denied what should i do ? any suggestion is appreciated

Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?
