everything has installed properly apart from that. It's possible that the
assumption is that you get everything working properly before creating an
startup process. There are different options depending on what you want to
use postfix for - if you're just using it for sending mail from an
application you don't have to do as much as using it as an inbound MTA. Have
a look through the Postfix documentation at
http://www.postfix.org/documentation.html to work out what you need to do
for your needs.
