I am trying to set up an email server and I am having some issues. Postfix seems to be configured correctly. But I can not get that email messages to come down from gateway. I can provide logs but that website I used to configure was: https://www.linuxbabe.com/redhat/run-your-own-email-server-centos-postfix-smtp-server and https://www.linuxbabe.com/redhat/install-dovecot-centos-enable-tls-encryption .
