Default noobie email questions with ispconfig and debian 4 etch

I'm having all sorts of email problems. I can't seem to send email to anyone, not from inside the network or outside the network, except I can send mail from inside the network to myself (

I can telnet to port 25
and then
ehlo localhost
and I get the proper output.

The username I'm using is web1_mark with the email address of

When I'm on the box and type:

sendmail -v
ctrl + d

I get the output sent to root which I can check in /var/mail/nobody (which is kind of weird that the root mail is going to nobody)

The output is this:

<> (expanded from <>): delivery
    via local: forwarded as 9D403180C54C

Content-Description: Delivery report
Content-Type: message/delivery-status

Reporting-MTA: dns;
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 99527180C54E
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822;
Arrival-Date: Fri, 27 Jun 2008 16:39:18 -0700 (PDT)

Final-Recipient: rfc822;
Original-Recipient: rfc822;
Action: relayed
Status: 2.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; delivery via local: forwarded as 9D403180C54C
The mail users seem to be:

server1:/var/mail# ls
admispconfig  nobody  web1_mark  web2_mark
But after sending mail to there is no mail for that user and nothing inside the file web1_mark

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing with setting up email accounts using ispconfig.

in /var/log/mail.log I'm not getting anything at all after sending mail as root to

That's just internal mail so far. Any suggestions?
