Re: Postfix Setup

I had asked a fairly clear question... it was: Ho do I set Postfix to accept email for, and relay email to another MTA? This is the one thing I need to accomplish.
There's really no need to berate me and otherwise treat me like a buffoon.... Victor.
Is there someone willing to help? Please?

Specific questions are much easier to answer than "How do I go about
doing this?".

Carefully identify and write down the requirements for the new system.
What must it do (in detail). What must it not do (in detail). This means
identifying "use cases", concrete events that occur and how the system
should respond.

Once you understand the requirements, you need to configure the system
to behave the way you want it to behave. Divide the problem into parts,
identify which parts you understand and which you are unclear about. Ask
specific questions about the parts that are not clear to you and provide
a detailed description of the relevant "use case".
