If I remember correctly, you can avoid this by setting the "myhostname"
with the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of your external network
interface (that connected to the Internet). You can get this by running
this command:

host your.internet.ip.address

It should return:

{ARPA address} domain name pointer {your FQDN}

If you have dynamically assigned IP, this is a little more complex
though. My solution was to put a line on the dhclient-exit-hooks script
to update the "myhostname" parameter with the my current FQDN and
reloading Postfix's config, using these commands:

postconf -e "myhostname=your.fqdn"
if pidof master &>/dev/null; then postfix reload &>/dev/null; fi
