Sorry, total beginner with mail servers, but I've got an Ubuntu box at Rackspace which only has a fixed IP address. I would like to setup postfix to use this rather than a domain, is that possible??

I looked at those posts, I couldn't see any mention of using a fixed IP.
I'm looking at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Postfix where every all the examples are showing mail.sample.com, can I use a fixed IP address for that? I heard that mail servers need an MX record to receive mail, does that require a domain?
