PS> Thanks to whoever created the steps for Perfect Server and Virtual Domain Mail Postfix... It really was a big help to me and i honestly must thank you.
Seems like you are running debian i think postfix will log to mail.error mail.info and mail.log.

I dont think it will log the word error.

Try tailing the logs then telnet to the server
Code:
tail -f /var/log/mail.*
You should see some thing like
Code:
warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 1326 exit status 1
