WordPress, Contact Forms and Email Weirdness

I need some help debugging why mail sent via a contact form on a WordPress never reaches my gmail account. The site is hosted by linode. I think I have SMTP and Postfix installed. Mail sent from outside linode finds my dns and reaches gmail. Not so for mail sent within the linode-hosted WordPress domain.

1. What is the domain in question?

2. What operating system and version are you using?

3. What does running the command /usr/sbin/sendmail -V get you?

4. If #3 does not result in an error, try running the following and see if the message goes through. Use your actual Gmail address in place of your-address.

/usr/sbin/sendmail -t <
