It appears that part of my problem is that I didn't understand how to properly send a message. I have postfix only listening on the loopback interface. It appears like I will have to change the config so it listens on the eth0 interface. Then I have to setup user authentication on postfix. Finally I have to open the smtp port on the firewall. I was hoping that I could just use the local mutt to post a message. Does this sound about right?
