I've searched this forum and found lots of similar problems, but mostly about SENDING mail rather than RECEIVING it. I've tried some of the solutions suggested in the similar topics, but nothing has worked, so its possible that I've messed things up worse.

Again, I can send emails, but not recieve. Any help would be appriciated!
Have you created a website "www.mydomain.dom" in ISPConfig? Has this site a co-domain "mydomain.dom" with empty host field?

If yes:

Is the domain "mydomain.dom" listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names ?

If "mydomain.dom" is not a local domain on your server, you will have to enable SMTP server authentication in your email client. In outlook the option is named like "Server needs authentication".
