Temporary Lookup Failure - Postfix & Dovecot

Hey all!

I’m trying to setup a Mail Server on a Droplet. I’ve got everything working as far as connecting to Outlook goes, but when I try to send a message, I get this.

Here’s some files of potential interest to help fixing the issue.

mail.log error main.conf

If you need anything else, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for the help!
