Subject: this is another test to see if it is working
this is to test if mail on worldcorpservices.com is workin gfine
here's my main.cf
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version

# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.

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

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.crt
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.key
smtpd_use_tls = yes

smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for

home_mailbox = Maildir/
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
