It looks like postfix is trying to relay your messages. Do you have mydestination set in main.cf?

Hi billymayday,

Yes.

$ cat /etc/postfix/main.cf | grep mydestination
Code:
#mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
#mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
mydestination = $localhost, $myhostname, $mydomain
It seems screwing up on godaddy.com site. Can I attach screenshot on posting?

Godaddy's Total DNS Control Panel
Code:
CNAMES (Aliases)
Host		Points To		                        TTL	Actions
mail 		mail.satimis.com 				3600	change/delete
	
pop 		mail.satimis.com 				3600	change/delete
	
smtp 		mail.satimis.com 				3600	change/delete
	
ftp 		@ 						3600	change/delete
	
webmail 	mail.satimis.com                		3600	change/delete
	
e 		mail.satimis.com 				3600	change/deleteTXT

Hi billymayday,

Problem solved by editing DNS Control Center on Godaddy site making all items under "CNAMES (Aliases)" pointing to "satimis.com". Now postfix can receive mails.

My next step will be setup user mail boxes, security, etc. Please advise where can I find "documents for Ubuntu" to install/setup Postfixadmin, setup vmail user account and usergroup, setup files linking MySQL and postfix, etc.

TIA

Hi billymayday,

Tks for your advice and link.

That is what I prefer, learning command line installation/configuration, the basic. I have webmin running on this box. However it will be my last resort.
