Thus the whole dns string to reach my postfix server would be:
WEBSRV1.SCARTO.XS4ALL.NL

This is dns string is not reachable from the internet and might be a problem for the "SMTP greeting (port 25)".
Then you must create a DNS record for WEBSRV1.SCARTO.XS4ALL.NL. Ask your provider to do so.

If you don't want to create a DNS record for WEBSRV1.SCARTO.XS4ALL.NL, then you must edit /etc/postfix/main.cf, /etc/hostname and maybe /etc/hosts. Restart Postfix afterwards.
