Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

# INTERNET HOST AND DOMAIN NAMES
# The myhostname parameter specifies the internet hostname of this
# mail system. The default is to use the fully-qualified domain name
# from gethostname(). $myhostname is used as a default value for many
# other configuration parameters.
#myhostname = host.domain.tld
#myhostname = virtual.domain.tld
should i take out the # and make myhostname = vps.gofastgaming.com according to the people i lease my server from the hostname of my VPS server is vps.gofastgaming.com, or is it expecting me to type mail.gofastgaming.com?
btw how do i know what my network card is "set on" those are the IPs of server. as i said this is on a VPS im renting and i dont have access to the actual hookingup up of the server i just got root access to it pretty much
ok i fixed the mynetworks variable then restarted postifx. the mail got stuck in the queue (between 2 local users). is there something thats cauing mail to not automaticaly go through the mail queue?
i also tried to send an email from an outside user to one on the server, it didnt make it to the queue (yet atleast)
edit: on the webmin postfix module theres a thing that prints out configuration, i put it into a pastebin, since it used ot be all in html tables the information it printed out kind of lost its readiablity. mainly i think you should look at lines 400 and below maybe something is goofed?
First, who do you think this mail should be going to? If you've automated something from your webserver, it doesn't seem to be addressing properly. I assume the maildrop message is related, but keep an eye on this.
This log file should be your best frient in fixing this problem, there's a lot of useful information here. Fix a little at a time - start with that bounce notification at the start of this post, then try manually sending an email to a valis user (try to root perhaps), and then look at the log.
Repost if you can't work it out.

i orignialy setup postfix using yum and ive edited some files in the webmin control panel which might of casued some issues
theres a built in compose message where you can send emails from local users and automatialy it fills out the from address to be firstname.lastname@example.org (i dont understand why it isnt just gofastgaming.com)
