Simple mail server

Until now all I could get to work is sending mail, but never recieved mail from outside the network (like
The domain name goes through my DNS server.
The servers I'm currently using:
Mail - Postfix
IMAP - Courier-IMAP
It all would be a lot simplier if I had any kind of log in the log file about receiving mail, but... simply no single line even adds when mail is supposed to be recieved and even sometimes I can't send mail anyway...
