A dopey typo... looking at something else... should be: ubuntu-17.04

Well that's good news.

When I used sendmail, fetchmail would pass incoming mail to port25 for
sendmail to deliver. I don't know how postfix works but I thought it might be
the same way when used with fetchmail.

Ubuntu has interactive installer for package postfix that allows you
to create smarthost configuration. Did you try it? 

Yes, but that didn't help the masquerading part. What I said above was that
the SmartHost wasn't enough without masquerading.

I've been thru the config thing, repeatedly and have not seen any 
questions about masquerading.

I did find something in the docs but what I understood them to be saying
isn't working .. not yet anyway... still tinkering with it.
