Post Postfix can send Emails - but cann't receive any

Hello Guys.
I am new to all linux OS. I have got Ubuntu 6.06 installed (did follow the how toforge instructions).
Installation went smooth, the webserver Apache2 is working but I am struggling with the postfix I guess (it can be MX records though).
So, I have spent a month by reading the howtoforge about how to resolve the Email problem having Postfix with maildir. No luck.
I can send Emails to any address in the world but I do not receive neither email messages or bounce back.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
I disagree with the current
concept of the Internet!

Please make sure that the MX record for your domain is pointing to your server. You can check that with
dig mx yourdomain.com
