Fiddling with Postfix

I am just reading up on Postfix.

I wanted to try exchanging some mail locally for test and tried to find the mail MUA, but couldn't. It is actually now called mailx (or nail) package, so yum install mailx should get it.

Trying to do nslookup and dig, but that wasn't installed. Search yielded that they are part of bind-utils package. Do a yum install bind-utils

Here is the output of my postconf -n

alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
command_directory = /usr/sbin
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
data_directory = /var/lib/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
home_mailbox = Maildir/
html_directory = no
inet_interfaces = all
inet_protocols = all
mail_owner = postfix
mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq.postfix
manpage_directory = /usr/share/man
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain, mail.$mydomain, www.$mydomain, ftp.$mydomain
mydomain =
myhostname =
mynetworks =,
mynetworks_style = class
myorigin = $mydomain
newaliases_path = /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.7.1/README_FILES
sample_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.7.1/samples
