Has the owner of the domain contracted you and given you permission to
use the domain?   From the whois record, the domain owner appears to
be located in the Netherlands with it's own MX and NS records.

Use any of the following example.com, example.net, example.org  if you
are doing this for your own interest and make sure you are also
running a local DNS server that resolves *all* record types i.e. NS,
MX etc. for the domain you select.

I normally use "intra.example.com" for an internal SMTP server and
then work my way upwards to the Internet cloud.

Additionally, look up "smarhost relay" settings in postfix.

The best way to learn how to set your combination of services is by
testing diffferent scenarios.   Besides, the error messages that pop
in the client, you should also look that the postfix log file(s) in
/var/log.  Most services give you enough details to figure out what
the problem is.
