I have exhausted all of my skills at debugging this. My Postfix server 
seems to be a relay host. 

My looks like:
# See /usr/share/postfix/ for a commented, more complete 

# Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
myorigin = /etc/mailname

biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings

Logs include entries which look like:

The email sender or Email Service Provider may visit and request removal of the block. 

Where did I screw up?
