If you followed one of the tutorials that use mysql to host virtual users and domains, you need to create a sql command and execute it with mysql or phpmyadmin. Have a look at section 13 on this page Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) for an example of the necessary sql INSERT commands.

Which tutorial exactly did you follow? If it's the "Perfect Server", take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2

If you're not blacklisted, you should make sure that you have proper SPF and reverse records.
