Default Email help and settings

Hi

Im having a little trouble with ISPConfig and postfix, first I followed the perfect howto for Dapper and all seemed to of gone well my fist question is this:

What are the mail settings for email clients like outlook, thunderbird etc etc with my other domain i login to Cpanel and just add the account and it tells you some thing like:
Code:
username = user+domain
mail client settings = mail.domain.com
My next question is this for some reason some thing is telling me that my main.cf is wrong so i wounder if a postfix guru could take a quick look and see if you can spot any thing wrong?

Code:
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version


# Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.crt
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.key
smtpd_use_tls = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = phoenix.ixl2.org
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
#mydestination = phoenix.ixl2.org, localhost.ixl2.org, , localhost
relayhost = 
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
mailbox_command = 
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all
inet_protocols = ipv4
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = 
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject_unauth_destination
smtpd_tls_auth_only = no
smtp_use_tls = yes
smtp_tls_note_starttls_offer = yes
smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/ssl/cacert.pem
smtpd_tls_loglevel = 1
smtpd_tls_received_header = yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom

virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
home_mailbox = Maildir/
Thanks for any help you can provide .

1) Mail settings:

Use the domain name as smtp and pop3 server and the username (web[ID]_user) as username and the password you entered as password.

2) main.cf problem. Please post the exact error message you got.

Enter me@mydomain.com in the forward field in the settings of test@mydomain.com.

But I guess what you want is a alias, so that both emails get to the same mailbox. In this case add test in the alias field if the email address me@mydomain.com
