postfix mail server at home

I'd like to try runing a postfix server at home to accept mail directly using +net as a fallback. The dns changes look straight forward, but the configuring of the mail server here less so.

Does anyone have any experience or even better mail.cf sample for configuring in this mode?

postfix mail server at home

I have now got postfix up and running and selected my hosted domain to deliver to it. This appears to be working.

I used to collect my hosted mail from another linux server running fetchmail (using my +net account, and this clearly dealt with the hosted domain too). What I have noticed, now, though is that if fetchmail gets to the mail before it is forwarded to my mail server it still collects the hosted domain as well as +net domain.

Is this by design? ie that not only does autoturn keep the message safe if the home email server is down, but also allows pop3 collection as well?
