A rapid answer:

in /etc/postfix/main.cf configure
myhostname = <the hostname of your box>
inet_interfaces = localhost # so that it won't be open to the world
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost

create a user mailtest on your box

send mails to mailtest@<the hostname of your box> and read it via 
mail command or install pine or elm

this should work (not tested, however I have a lot of servers 
configured with postfix and this should be the minimal configuration you need)
