I had the same problem on another machine. I fixed this by alteringing the line in the hosts file
x.x.x.x snoopy.localdomain snoopy
I also removed all entries the resolv.conf file.
And now the mail works immediately. I guess its not trying to use DNS to resolve the hostname.
So thats the name resolution problem solved, but what about my other machine that refuses the connection? all firewall rules were turned off with iptables -F.
So any ideas why this is happening?
