Postfix Setup Questions?

Hi all,

I need some help setting up Postfix on my Peer to Peer lan. I have a dynamic public IP of which is monitored by a dynamic DNS service that automatically updates my zone file through Zoneedit. My router's IP address is, and the linux box is The linux box hostname is My Internet domain name is

I have modified the following items in the file but so far no mail reaches the server:

myorigin = $mydomain
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain
inet_interfaces = all

Then I stopped and restarted the postfix service, sent a test email, and checked the /etc/postfix/frank folder to see if there was any mail, but it was 0.

Am I even close on this or do I need to setup the file with different settings?

Any help would be much appreciated.
