I added the user to that but the emails are still getting rejected. I was told I need to add new user's short name to the domain user's file and restart the postfix process. But I have no clue how too. Thanks anyway.

add the user into you access.db

i think its in /etc/mail, vi the file called access, put the username or e-mail address of the user on a line followed by RELAY or ACCEPT

rebuild the access.db by renaming it to something (ie access.db1) then type make

I opened it and it just gave me instructions? A format of Postfix access table. But none of it makes any sense to me.
