Thanks Viktor! For anyone who runs into the same/similar problem: it seems no
more up-to-date yum package is available for CentOS. I found some pre-compiled
packages for CentOS 5 at http://www.linuxmail.info/postfix-rpm-packages/. I was
able to do an rpm install of the 2.5.1 postfix package, which automatically
upgraded the existing installation.

Read the Postfix release notes. These will highlight any potential
compatibility issues and major changes.
When upgrading from a release this old, yes you do need to stop Postfix
Make sure that your binary package installer correctly upgrades
the main.cf and master.cf files via "postfix set-permissions
upgrade-configuration". Do not undo this by re-installing original
main.cf/master.cf files from before the upgrade.
For other help on Linux package management, this is not the right forum.
