I highly recommend reading http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html
It's easy to understand, and if you follow it in sequence your postfix should be working just fine.

For a basic setup you shouldn't have to touch master.cf , only main.cf - and only the parameters listed in the link I mentioned above.

Briefly, you'll want to set the following parameters in main.cf:
myhostname = host.name.tld
mydomain = name.tld
myorigin = yourdomain.com

Then do a
Code:
postfix start
or
Code:
postfix reload
if postfix is already running.
