Briefly: I had a problem with postfix. That is why I killed the process. Problem now is that I can not start it again.

How can I solve this? And what additional information do you need?

Output from Linux:

[root@kcsweb03 /]# postfix restart
-bash: /usr/sbin/postfix: cannot execute binary file


[root@kcsweb03 /]# service postfix start
Starting postfix:                                          [FAILED]

There is nothing interesting in the logs (maillog, messages, etc)
