Default Postfix, ISPConfig 3, Problem receiving emails

I have ISPConfig 3 set up with several domain names. I am on a dynamic IP which is blacklisted by SpamHaus so I followed another HowTo here to relay thru an email server account I have elsewhere. Now I can send emails from my local accounts without getting rejected.

But I can not receive emails.

If sent to a yahoo account, yahoo receives ok. Trying to reply gives...

Code:
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<admin@example.com>:
Sorry, I couldn't find a mail exchanger or IP address. (#5.4.4)

--- Below this line is a copy of the message.

Return-Path: <example@yahoo.com>

If I send a message to an email address on the server I'm relaying thru 2 copies arrive. When I reply I get a copy of the response and 2 copies of the following failure message...

That I'm getting 2 copies and an email address in the message that shouldn't exist (admin@nonexistent_example.com) makes me thing there is a forwarder set up at my offsite ISP. I do not have one set up and they haven't responded.

I seem to have my local DNS and MX records set up. I changed /etc/postfix/main.cf line MYDESTINATIONS to point to a file called local-host-names, then added all my domains to that file (including mail.domain.com).

So does this appear to be a local problem or a problem at my relay ISP? Does the relaying only affect sending mail (which seems to work ok) or can it mess with my receiving mail as well?

... I changed the email addresses and domains in the examples to avoid spam bots, the actual local mailserver domain is host.servidora.net, and a domain I'm trying to receive at is sys666.net. Thanks for any pointers, you guys are great.
