Any errors in your mail log?

Do the MX records for your domains point to the correct server? You can check that with
Code:
dig mx yourdomain.com

Well, it could be many things, that are wrong.

For instance - check the priviledges of those mail directories, whether postfix can access them for writing and reading.

If yes, there must be some errors in the log. Try to send email to yourself from that machine and post a mail.log output.

I guess mail.authsmtp.com is not your server?

The MX record must point to your own server. You can create an A record like mail.kwickservers.com that points to your server's IP and then create an MX record for blackmagicpe.com that points to mail.kwickservers.com.
