Unhappy Unable to send and receive mail in command line mode

I have finished to install Postfix following this howto "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Debian Etch)". To test the well running of the server I've decided to send an email o the first users. Below is the error message.
Thanks more to help me solve this problem before using a mail agent like icedove.
