Default help... postfix can send but can't receive

i dont even know where to start with this... first off im running Fedora Core 5, and i set up postfix according to the perfect setup tutorial on this website. following that, i installed ispconfig, and everything seemed to be working fine. i set up my own dns records for my domain (nakudev.net) on my dns server and i changed the dns thingys from the godaddy parked defaults to my dns server, but thats beside the point since it works correctly. the confusion arises when i try to send email from a remote server, like gmail, to my email server. i have a dns A record for mail.nakudev.net pointing to my ip, and an MX record for mail.nakudev.net. under the site administration I added a user for email, "nakuribon@nakudev.net". the username is web1_nakuribon. i send an email from gmail to nakuribon@nakudev.net and it doesn't arrive. even more confusing, it doesnt even show up in /var/log/maillog (where ispconfig keeps the postfix log). however, when i send mail from nakuribon@nakudev.net to my gmail account, gmail receives it almost instantly. what's going on and how do i fix it?

Well I was able to send you an email. The only thing that's wrong that TLS transfer does not work because of CN missmatch:

Is this your public IP address? 65.24.150.52
Did you enable Maildir in ISPConfig under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email?
