How are you trying to access the e-mail accounts? Pop? Imap?

Did you install a pop and/or imap server that works with the postfix inboxes?

Are the ports for pop (110/tcp) and imap (143/tcp) open on the servers firewall?

A test for that under XP it to go to start -> run -> telnet your.server.ip.address 110 (or 143)
