Not sure why you are testing this through a file sending service? You should try and send from an external, normal mail account to firstname.lastname@example.org and then check your logs. If you see no log entry, then the message doesn't even reach your mail server which most likely indicates a DNS issue.
If you care to post your domain, me or somebody else can easily check if your DNS is OK.

Thank you very much for you help.
I indeed use a filesending service for testing, and agree that thats not the best way to test, but it was a way.
Since most email are delivered it is hard to test when it is going wrong.
Its a good change that it has to do with the DNS.
Does anybody know how to test if DNS is installed proper? I did install a default MLS installation.
What I see is that there is one issue with my reversed DNS.
When I type in terminal:
I get my IP, but when I type:
I don't see my server host but the one from my ISP.
18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer 095-097-002-083.static.chello.nl.
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer 095-097-002-083.server.crypton.nl
Might that be the problem?
Since you mention it can it has to do with the DNS.
Since it is all default, i dont know what is wrong with it.

Indeed your reverse PTR record for your IP 126.96.36.199 is not correct and you should ask your ISP to change it. This, however, is not the cause of your problems.
You seem to have 2 MX records for your domain. One pointing to relay.transip.nl. Does relay.transip.nl accept mail for your domain and/or this specific user?
P.S. Testing through file sending service is meaningless. Any send receipts you get from them, merely mean they attempted to send the mail. They won't know what happened to the e-mail down the road.
Use an external e-mail account like a Gmail account for example. Send to your address and check your logs.
