Mail server not accpeting connections

I just installed RedHat7.2. The mail server is running. I startx and use netscape messenger to connect to the mail server, which is running on localhost. I edit the preferences and define my mail server as my <IP>:<port>. When I try to connect to the server, I get a services for port 25 disabled for security reasons error. I have modified my ipchains to allow everything. I still get that error. Even when I change my mailserver connection to localhost, I still can't connect.

Please Help
I'm at the end of my rope.

Please don't open the same thread in other forums.
Most people from here also read the network forum as security and networks are closely connected.
