Postfix SMTP server not running on port 25

I've been trying to recover from deleting Axigen (I got tired of the tagline on the free edition) and have been trying to get Postfix working correctly.
I'm able to send mail perfectly now, but receiving mail is still not working, and all I can determine is that Postfix isn't running on port 25 (I know this because I can't telnet into it).

Any clues about what might be causing this, and how I can get Postfix either started or running on the correct port? (config directive?)

Running openSuSE 10.2l;
Unknown postfix version (the executable doesn't seem to like --version...)

Postfix doesn't listen on external interfaces by default. Edit /etc/postfix/ and change "inet_interfaces = localhost" to "inet_interfaces = $myhostname, localhost", then "service postfix restart"
