I managed to get it to work with the proxy information included by reinstalling the entire setup. I guess the first time around something must of permanently got messed up.

I have a quesiton regarding the virtual domains that the guide allows you to do. For the particular machine that you are going to set this up, can you also host the email for that virtual domain on the machine, for instance, if the domain for the machine is kefka.happygolucky.com and you want to host emails for happygolucky.com, can you do that or do you need to setup the machine to use a different fully qualified domain name (ie. springfield.another domain.com)? I can't seem to send or receive if I setup the mail server with the same virtual domain name as the email I want to receive on it.

Thanks.

You must not have domains in the mydestination line in /etc/postfix/main.cf that you want to use for virtual hosting.
If you have kefka.happygolucky.com in mydestination, you should be able to use happygolucky.com for virtual hosting as it's different from kefka.happygolucky.com.

But if the machine's hostname is kefka.happygolucky.com and I'm trying to host happygolucky.com emails via virtual hosting, will that work or will the machine's hostname have be totally different (not happygolucky.com) to work?

Thanks for the replies!

Yes, as I've posted already.
