      Thank you Peter. Interestingly, even after enabling submission
      (perhaps incorrectly, I'm looking into that) I still get this in the
      logs when I try to send mail via postfix:

      11993 Jul 9 05:02:11 awsBeta postfix/smtpd[6734]: warning: hostname
      bzq-219-241-14.static.bezeqint.net does not resolve to address
      212.179.241.14: Name or service not known
      11994 Jul 9 05:02:11 awsBeta postfix/smtpd[6734]: connect from
      unknown[212.179.241.14]
      11995 Jul 9 05:02:12 awsBeta postfix/smtpd[6734]: NOQUEUE: reject:
      RCPT from unknown[212.179.241.14]: 554 5.7.1
      <dotancohen@...>: Relay access denied;

      11996 Jul 9 05:02:14 awsBeta postfix/smtpd[6734]: disconnect from
      unknown[212.179.241.14]

      212.179.241.14 is the address where my desktop is located, and bzq-*
      obviously by the name refers to my ISP (Bezeq). It seems that even
      with submission enabled, Postfix wants the IP address whitelisted in
      "mydomains". I don't even see in the logs that Postfix bothered
      checking the submission credentials, it rejected bases on IP address
      before even getting that far.

      What else must be configured to remove the IP address whitelist and go
      right to the submission credentials check?

      Thank you for helping me learn! I've gone over these tutorials but I'm
      rather stuck:
