that the problem is outside of Postfix.
It could be any of:
- Incorrect default route configured on the Postfix host
- Incorrect firewall configuration on the Postfix host
- Incorrect LAN router configuration (NAT/forwarding)
- Conflict with ISP-side configuration
This is a matter of systematic trouble shooting, or random experiments
and dumb luck.
