Question

Send only email with postfix

Hello all, I have read through the tutorials on this and I have it almost working I think. However “always a caveat 8^)” Mail goes out and I receive it ok. But I have to specify the email server box when sending email e.g. send mail to raw :- mail raw@mailhost.brahmaloka.net works mail raw@brahmaloka.net does not. (bounces). I guess I should be happy it works at all 8^). I have my droplet entered under my own domain which I own. My mailserver appears to be setup right as far as mx records are concerned. I have no doubt it’s my postfix settings on the droplet. Not a big deal but curious. Guess I need to buy the Oreilly postfix book. To be clear, raw@brahmaloka.net works from everywhere else. I assume it’s my error , it usually is. Thanks for looking.
