    I think you have to tell Postfix that certain mail can be relayed - that is specifically all mail destined for the satimis.com domain and (possibly) all mail generated on machines in the IP address space of satimis.com, or certainly on any private IP range within the satimis.com organisation.

    How you do this, though, I dont know. I'm not familiar with Postfix, but I'm sure it'll be in the man pages or online help somewhere.

    I believe that you did a fresh installation of postfix, the problem is that postfix will only accept mail destined to the machine itself and not to the domain.

    Try these
    myhostname=<your FQDN>
    mydomain=< your domain>
    mydestination=localhost.$mydomain,$mydomain,email. $mydomain .....
    mynetworks=192.168.2.0/8,127.0.0.0/8

    Post the results of the above.

    reload postfix and it should work.

    Hi folks,

    Tks for your advice.

    Problem solved by editing DNS Control Center on Godaddy site making all items under "CNAMES (Aliases)" pointing to "satimis.com". Now postfix can receive mails.

    My next step will be setup user mail boxes, security, etc. Please advise where can I find "documents for Ubuntu" to install/setup Postfixadmin, setup vmail user account and usergroup, setup files linking MySQL and postfix, etc.

    TIA
