Hi guys hope you can help.

I created the setup with this tutorial


All I want is a single user account ME allen.white@techieshelp.com

I set it up as that tutorial, I can telnet to it no problems and ehlo ok. However when I send my self an email I get.

Im unsure of the following. In postfix the MYNETWORKS = confuses me
I have entered LOCALHOST. Should I put the ip of my VPS?

THe mail issue is it does not think the user is created. Hope someone can help!

Many thanks
