Postfix / qpopper / M$ Outlook problem...

OK, here is my problem:

I have a firewall (Linux of course!) to which attaches my cable modem, local internal LAN and my webserver.
I have ports 80, 23, 25, & 110 setup as pinholes from my DMZ to my internal LAN for accessing my webserver. All my websites work correctly within Apache and all is well.

However, I want to setup my webserver box (Redhat 7.3) to receive my mail as well. I have Fetchmail, Postfix, and qpopper installed and want to collect my mail using M$ Outlook.

Outlook connects to my pop3 server (and therefore in theory can collect my mail), but cannot connect to the smtp server (Postfix) and I cannot understand why? In Outlook I use the IP address of the server rather than "localhost". I haven't done much with Postfix as I believe it should work "out of the box" - am I wrong? I've had a look through and there doesn't seem to be much to configure that doens't already look correct (and it IS running before anyone asks!)

Am a bit stumped now, can someone please point me in the right direction??

I'm sure it's something simple!
