comment Postfix/dovecot mail server can send/receive local, but can't send on remote
Hey Sander (again ;)) Postfix should be doing the talking across port 25 for incoming/outgoing server-to-server mail communication. Dovecot would be using the standard POP/IMAP ports (110, 143, 465, 587) for talking to your MUA like Outlook. Perhaps it was just the reload of Dovecot that solved the problem?

Your IP brings up a webhosting control panel login. Have you checked your VPS settings and DNS records to make sure your domain is reachable from the outside world?

comment NAS won't auto-mount at boot + qBittorrent issues
You can add the user/password pair as part of the fstab entry without having to edit anything with Samba credentials. There are also ways to use a hash file to store those fstab credentials if you're concerned about somebody accessing the /etc/fstab record.

comment Setup Linksys E900 Ubuntu 12.04
What about using the "Connect with an open and unsecured network" link on the page? Granted, it won't use https for connecting to the router admin setup, but on an internal network, not much of a security issue..

comment Postfix, Dovecot mail server can send mails but not recive
Unless you have aliases set up in Dovecot for root and postmaster, you'll never see email show up for non-user accounts. root and postmaster, while valid users, are typically blocked out in Postfix other than for internal (localhost) emails. Do you have another user mailbox set up that you can try sending email to?
