What did you try? Did you read the man page and or visit the postfix site?
IIRC the last time I set up postfix I added a real account to the root
alias at the end of
/etc/postfix/aliases, ran 'newaliases', and inserted
mynetworks_style = host
relayhost = [my outgoing smtp server name here]
and reloaded postfix
perhaps you missed the aliases step? It won't start without a valid root alias
