What's the sender's email address? Does it have a FQDN on the right side?
What's the value of myhostname in /etc/postfix/main.cf?
What's the output of
Code:
hostname -f
?

root@mail:~# postconf -n
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases

delay_warning_time = 4h

mydestination = gabrix.ath.cx, mail.gabrix.ath.cx, localhost.gabrix.ath.cx, localhost
mydomain = gabrix.ath.cx
myhostname = mail
mynetworks = 192.168.1.1,192.168.0.0/16,192.168.1.0/24,127.0.0.0/8
myorigin = $mydomain

relayhost =
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name
soft_bounce = yes

root@mail:~# hostname -f
mail.gabrix.ath.cx

root@mail:~# hostname
mail

The mailname is gabrix.ath.cx which goes behind the @ gabrix.ath.cx correct ?

This isn't correct. Please run
Code:
postconf -e 'myhostname = mail.gabrix.ath.cx'
and restart Postfix.
