Again, thanks for all your help, it is very much appreciated.

Is 199.xxx.xxx.114 your server's public IP address? Is it connected directly to the internet, or is it in a local network?

Yes, that is the public IP. It is in a local network, using port forwarding to translate to the local ip address.

Maybe your ISP decided to block port 25? You should ask them.

Good thought, but not the issue, I have another mail server running on a windows machine that is using the same connection (different public IP) and is still working properly. I put this server together to learn more about linux and thought I had done pretty good until this popped up..

Would it be a good idea to uninstall and reinstall postfix?

I don't think it's a Postfix problem. Did you check the MX records of your domains? Are they correct? You can check with
Code:
dig mx mydomain.com

Looks ok. Can you run
Code:
tail -f /var/log/maillog
and at the same time send a mail to your server? What happens in your mail log then?

Well, I did this.. what I saw was "unknown local recipient" error and an error saying "TLS Library problem".. So, I removed the "test" domain in ISPconfig and sent another mail to the server. It came through. So, something was messed up. No idea what or why but it seems to be working properly now. Thank you very much for your suggestions.
