Telnet localhost and telnet not from localhost for IMAP services


I've a server @ the matrix and I have a mail probleme :|

I've made a mail account for exemple

when I'm logging using my shell and if I do :

root@thematrix [~]# telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS AUTH=LOGIN] localhost IMAP4rev1 2002.325-cpanel at Wed, 15 Oct 2003 09:56:36 +0200 (CEST)

there is no probleme but if I do it not from localhost :

[root@maison root]# telnet 143
Trying xx.yy.ww.zz...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

of course mydomaine is pointing to my server there is no probleme with dns ...

I've no problems to telnet 21 to have FTP service

I should set up the IMAP service to answer from outside but how ???

thank you for your help
