postfix config & mailclients outside of the server's internal network
Hy there!
I used this tutorial (written by falko) to configure a mail server for one of my friends. Everything works well, till one point. I can't get it to work under any circumstances with a mail client (Thunderbird) from outside the network.

Can you help me please?

I modified mynetworks variable, adding my ip. With telnet I was able to send mails, but the mail client didn't react at all.

# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.

What's the mail client telling you - is it just a firewall issue or something more complicated?

What do you maillogs tell you?
