no problemo. Here are the changes I made in /etc/postfix/main.cf:

set myhostname = mail.sf-lug.com

 - looked up the MX record, and it's set to mail.sf-lug.com, so I
changed $myhostname accordingly

set mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain

 - removed "localhost" from the list

I restarted Postfix and that's it. I notice that $domainname is not
set on that machine, but I didn't touch that as it wasn't necessary.

It just needed a simple tweak.
