Postfix Setup Questions?


Hi all,

I need some help setting up Postfix on my Peer to Peer lan. I have a dynamic public IP of 24.195.132.227 which is monitored by a dynamic DNS service that automatically updates my zone file through Zoneedit. My router's IP address is 192.168.2.1, and the linux box is 192.168.2.103. The linux box hostname is web01.home.net. My Internet domain name is compunerdsmedia.com.

I have modified the following items in the main.cf file but so far no mail reaches the server:

mydomain home.net
myorigin = $mydomain
myhostname web01.home.net
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain
mynetworks 192.168.2.0/24 127.0.0.1/8
inet_interfaces = all

Then I stopped and restarted the postfix service, sent frank@compunerdsmedia.com a test email, and checked the /etc/postfix/frank folder to see if there was any mail, but it was 0.

Am I even close on this or do I need to setup the main.cf file with different settings?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Frank

Please add to previous post:

I am forwarding ports 25 and 110 to 192.168.2.103 (Linux box private IP) on my Linksys router.

Thanks,
Frank
