ok i did what that link said to do and it work to some extent now i get this when i send a message. It seems that postfix is removing the message before i can get in my email client. I am using mozilla thunderbird

Dec 7 14:59:02 localhost imapd: Authenticated user=web1_james host=netlan.com [192.168.1.1]
This is when i send it from another computer. i cant get the email then.
So i thought i needed to make a new user so i made email@example.com under the email tab under the website. and this is what i get when i try to send to firstname.lastname@example.org

Dec 7 15:01:01 localhost CROND: (root) CMD (nice -n 19 run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
