POSTFIX won't recieve external mail


Hi.

I am trying to setup a mail server at home using postfix. I can send mail to my gmail and yahoo e-mail accounts but I can't recieve mail when I send mail from them. I can send mail between accounts on the localhost.

Here is my maillog shortly after I tried sending an e-mail from an external source:

Code:
Oct 16 16:30:11 deviance99 postfix/smtp[683]: 14817610077: to=<deviance99@gmail.com>, relay=gsmtp171.google.com[64.233.171.27],

Add [63.173.85.40] to the 'mydestination' line

so it looks like

mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, [63.173.85.40]

and then restart.

Thanks for the input, but this didn't solve the problem,

I also notice that I am getting "Relay access denied" errors if I try to use an external program (I can send mail using squirrelmail).
