    Well you need to take it out of your start up scripts. I'm not sure how to go about doing that for your particular distro, but if you're by chance a gentoo user: rc-update del postfix default

    For Red Hat and FC 1 run:

    redhat-config-services

    For FC 2 and 3 it's

    system-config-services

    For Mandrake, look in the Mandrake Control Center. In SuSE look in Yast under System-Runlevel Editor.
    With the different Debian based distros, it could be millions of ways...

    in suse i think you can go to :
    Code:
    /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/
    and
    remove the line with the postfix inside.

    in Debian, you can remove the startup-symlinks in the runlevels:
    for ex.
    Code:
    sudo rm -v /etc/rc*/S[0-9][0-9]postfix
    Code:
    removing `/etc/rc2.d/S20postfix'
    removing `/etc/rc3.d/S20postfix'
    removing `/etc/rc4.d/S20postfix'
    removing `/etc/rc5.d/S20postfix'
