So this won't be a complete waste of your time, I wonder if you could 
educate me a bit? I followed the instructions at 
http://prantran.blogspot.com/2007/01/getting-postfix-to-work-on-ubuntu-with.html 
down to the wrap up. I didn't quite follow what he was saying, but now 
understand that he was saying I should follow the instructions at 
http://www.kirranet.co.nz/content/howto-relay-email-using-ubuntu,-postfix-and-gmail 
which included installation of a Thawte cert.

I didn't do that, but my system mail wound up in my gmail inbox 
nonetheless. The problem is that I don't understand how the various 
pieces fit together well enough, so I'm prowling in the dark.

Q1: Postfix is running in three processes
Q2: mailq reports no mail
Q3:/var/log/mail.err has
Nov 27 23:37:06 Stewart sSMTP[15326]: 553 Stewart.adelphia.net does not 
exist
Nov 28 22:23:10 Stewart postfix/postfix-script[18789]: fatal: usage: 
postfix start (or stop, reload, abort, flush, check, set-permissions, 
upgrade-configuration)

mail.err.0 similarly complains about Stewart.adelphia.net

mail.info has quite a lot:

Now, since I have no cert, how is gmail accepting my mail??
