Hey guys,

Well, I'm trying to set up a PostFix email server on my ubuntu box. I got a DYNdns domain name: Dblaze.dyndns.org. Now I want to know how to set up postfix to recieve emails, and what email address I should have emails sent to. Would it be like Dan@Dblaze.dyndns.org or something like that? Or would I have to use my external IP? Thanks guys.

as you are on a dyn. ip you will encounter some problems with sending email.
