Postfix smtp not accepting connections

I have a Mandrake 10.1 installation running Postfix as the MTA

telnet 25 connects to Postfix SMTP agent correctly

telnet localhost 25 connects and hangs

telnet 25 and telnet x.x.x.x 25 refuse connection

I have set up with the mydomain and myhostname flags as well as the:
mydestination = $myhostname, $mydomain, localhost.$mydomain, localhost

Also, the smtp process is shown to be listening with
netstat -t -a | grep LISTEN

tcp 0 0 *:smtp *:* LISTEN

Internal mailing works fine, also I can male OUT from my domain, nothing gets in from the outside

Please help me

Cheers, Shaun
