I'm no mail wizard, but to quote the Kerryman when asked for directions:
"If I was you, I wouldn't start from here at all!" SMTP is the way to
go, as far as you can.
Drop that HOWTO and search the web for postfix config files - many
excellent examples are up there. Postfix has all sorts of tables to take
incoming mail, translate recipients and map them to (system)usernames.
Provide you get these half right, postfix will come out with a username
or forwarding address for whatever domain you accept. That system will
not migrate successfully to a larger installation, as the procmail
element will become a pain.
