(OP)
I'm trying to setup a mail server for my ubuntu 10.04 server using
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixBasicSetupHowto

Everything's been going smooothly until the paragraph: Setting Postfix Support for Maildir-style Mailboxes.
At the end of this parahraph, when I checked the mailbox for fmaster, it  said: No mail for fmaster:

luckyseven@luckyseven-desktop:~$ telnet localhost 25
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

Any ideas what went wrong in what I did ?


Further more, in paragraph: Adding your local domains to postfix.
How can I confifure my own mydestination ? i.e. how do I replace the values in:
sudo postconf -e "mydestination = mail.fossedu.org, localhost.localdomain, localhost, yourdomain.com"


I would appreciate muchly anyone could give me some light on these !

Kindly Amanda
