How do I set up Postfix to forward all emails from my domain to my main email address?

I’m new to setting up mail servers. I was using my current domain on another host and had many email addresses set up as forwarders to my main gmail account.

I attempted to install Postfix and tried setting up forwarders like in this example
however it does not seem to be working.

Does anyone have a guide on how to set up postfix from scratch to forward and only forward?
