Postfix Setup Help


I recently purchased a domain name (for example sake we will call it bob.com) and I'm currently trying to setup postfix on my server. I've put an MX record in my dns so that:

mail.bob.com priority=0 127.0.0.1(not real ip)

I have postfix installed and running, so now how do I configure it (I'm trying to do this through webmin but am lost). Thanks.

Update:

I have the POP3 account working, my mail client can log in and check email but for some reason the SMTP server isn't working right....I get a "Unable to log onto outgoing mail server (SMTP)" error. Any clues as to what might be causing this? Thanks again.
