Postfix configuration

I am using the following guide: https://www.linode.com/docs/email/postfix/email-with-postfix-dovecot-and-mysql/

I followed everything, and it's a very good guide, but there is no mention of whether a user, e.g, /home/jack, needs any mailbox configuration. Do I need to do anything, such as "touch /home/jack/mbox" or add jack to a mail group, etc? Other than that, it seems like it's working for outgoing mail, but when I sent an email (via Gmail or by Gmail Smarthost configuraiton on my home laptop, I get the following error:

The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect. Learn more at https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7720

Any ideas given the error message? Thanks.
