Unhappy ISPConfig3 Debian5 Postfix Courier mail not working

Strange things happening, I had followed the perfect server setup (and even commented on the install of ISPConfig with an update!) and everything has been purring along Perfectly! then today I had a friend call me up saying he couldn't use the "send a lost password" function that it was not sending him an email. So I went to view the logs in the ISPConfig3 menu and was greeted with the following :


So I went along reading up in these forums and came across a post not too long ago falco had made from this forum post http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33525 and so I started following his instructions, and wouldn't you know it, I probably made things worse as I didn't even have a file located at /etc/postfix/local-host-names but I went and entered in the command anyways (Stupid I know...) not realizing that this was info for ISPConfig2.

So I've made the file myself with a touch and some nano work, however now I only get mail to myself when I log in via ssh (so at least it's still making the mail... that's not broken...) But I can't seem to get it to go out to the web, display in my isp section and I think I broke squirrelmail as well.

I'm more then happy to post anything I can to get this working like it was before I borked it myself! Please help!

Also none of the ISPConfig mail links work they all return the same ???-???-??? error.

If at the very least what is the original file location that the 'mydestination' used to point at when following the Perfect Debian ISPConfig3 tutorial?

(and yes I know I should make a .bak of anything I work on and usually do being I'm still learning this whole linux world, and loving it!)

Thanks again! and before you ask here's my main.cf file

Code:
# Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.cert
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.key
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

content_filter = amavis:[127.0.0.1]:10024
receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
message_size_limit = 0
Looks a bit longer from ISP2 to ISP3 ;D

I also did create a local-host-names file and entered in the following

Code:
localhost
w3bserv3r.danstheman.net
localhost.w3bserv3r.danstheman.net
localhost.danstheman.net
localhost.localdomain
helloandwelco.me
twistedpair.mobi
mail.danstheman.net

Again thank you all for the great work and help you provide!

So I think I've got it sorted. Thankfully it seems that the file indeed did get backed up and I have restored it and all seem to be working great again. Thanks for the great site!
