Default postfix is not accepting mails from outside

I've configured a mailserver following the "perfect mandriva server" howto. postfix is working partly, meaningmails are sent out.
Zhe problem is, the server doesn't accept incoming mail, I'm getting a reply from my isp telling me

SMTP error from remote server after RCPT command:
host xxxx.xxxxxxxxxxxx.xx[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:
554 5.7.1 <xxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxx.xx>: Relay access denied
Anybody an idea?

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

Thanks for the reply, but in fact it was much simpler. The mailserver name is "mail.domain", the adresses are "name@domain".
After adding "domain" to the "mydestination"-entry of main.cf it worked.
No I have another problem...

But I will start an extra threat for that...
