Default PostFix says it's started but never runs

I have already run apt-get --purge remove postfix and reinstalled it but I am still getting this error below. I am not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Code:
root@box1:/etc/init.d# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
root@box1:/etc/init.d#
Code:
root@box1:/etc/init.d# ./postfix start
 * Starting Postfix Mail Transport Agent postfix                                                                                                                                                         [ ok ]
