Postfix for website

Hi and welcome,

I have a question about configuring postfix for a website.

Postfix on a stand-alone Internet host

My postconf -n shows:
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
config_directory = /etc/postfix
inet_interfaces = loopback-only
mynetworks_style = host

I'd just like you to ask, if it's enough? I've check with telnet, and it doesn't allow to relay so it should be ok. I just need to be sure about it

I've blocked port 25, so it's not even possible to check with mail relay test.

I was hoping that someone already has a good config which can be compared with


postfix, webserver
