OK, then your issue is really 'what to set up on that second machine', Sandy
has already given you instructions on the changes for postfix on the SuSE
machine so it passes the mail to the OSX machine.

You need to set up a server on the OSX machine to receive the mail that the
SuSE machine relays to it. You also need a pop3 or imap server on that
machine if you intend to let those users pop/imap their mail.

Setting a mail server up on OSX is really an OSX topic, frankly, you will
probably get more accurate and better advise from an OSX list than a SuSE
list for the setup on that machine.

The change to your SuSE box is simple, just follow Sandy's instructions. The
hard work is all on the OSX box, good luck.
