Thanks very much..

I seem to be struggling getting with the postfix command structure.

If you have the time would you be kind enough to give me specific examples of 
the actual entries to be made in the appropriate files. In case it is 
relevant my server has a  number of virtual domains but the problem I am 
getting is on the primary address for the mail server. Assume the email 
address in question is
root at host.mydomain.tld which appears to be subjected to problems and I want to 
permit only addresses on the local network to send emails to that address.

Thanks in advance

No problem if you are too busy
