    Question postfix, mutt - internal use only?!


    I'm running a Gentoo Linux box, and I tried to install postfix and mutt.

    when I run: mutt -x username, and proceed to write a message, it gets to the local user, but if I run: mutt -x emailaddress, nothing gets through.

    I am behind a router, but I have the SMTP and POP ports pointed at my Genoo machine.

    Is there a config step that I missed?
