I found that:
sudo postconf -ev relayhost=[your.isp.mail.host.goes_here]
did it for me. If you enjoy chasing apparently arbitrary silent delivery
failures, then try omitting the square brackets.  I found help in the
BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README (see below).
Have you tried:
$ $ postconf readme_directory
readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix
$ postconf html_directory
html_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix/html
If they're not there, then:
$ sudo apt-get install postfix-doc
There is overwhelming expertise on the postfix mailing list, if this one
doesn't suffice. (I'm still migrating my brain from sendmail) There,

Wietse Venema is the author of postfix, and doesn't muck about. If his

 The install script for the postfix package had done:
setting relayhost: mail.internode.on.net
which is wrong.
