No, I believe it just controls from which IP addresses Postfix will
accept messages to be *sent* (i.e. relayed) anywhere. I've been
running Postfix on a machine connected to the Internet via a cable
modem for a while, with just
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.1.0/24
both of which are not interfaces connected to the Internet.
mynetworks doesn't (as far as I know) affect how mail is received.
