I had to explicitly install most stuff because the hosting company who set up

Postfix Standard Configuration Examples
Yes, I read this several times but obviously it's one of those situations where
it doesn't make sense until you know what you're doing, and as my situation
isn't one of the explicitly described common situations, I think I'm doing OK so
mydomain = ecocore.org
What is this domain for?
I want the email address from my machine to be firstname.lastname@example.org (which is my
domain name). I can live without this.
Finally I just de-installed postfix and purged it and re-installed everything
without the mydomain=ecocore.org and now everything works.
Jan 19 17:47:52 ecocore postfix/smtp: AE2122A81F3:
relay=mx2.athnic.net[10.198.195.31]:25, delay=0.23, delays=0/0.01/0.12/0.1,
dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as D3990328BCD)
So the reason why postfix was saying "ecocore.vs.athnic.net[10.153.118.230]:25:
Connection refused" will never be known, beyond my simple ignorance :O
Thanks for your help,
