Seriously, if you cannot get Postfix to work, and it basically works "out of
the box", perhaps administering to a mail server is not a wise idea. It
sounds to me like you will end up getting your entire network blacklisted.

By the way, did you disable and shutdown SendMail BEFORE starting Postfix? In
addition, do you even have a dedicated IP address?
