warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/sbin/qmgr pid 206673 exit status 1

I set up postfix as per https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-postfix-as-a-send-only-smtp-server-on-ubuntu-20-04

I tried sending a test email. I did not get an error message, but email was never delivered. Looked at log. Got this output:
