Thanks! However, even after the change and confirming that postfix is
listening properly:
[root at mercury ~]# postconf -e 'inet_interfaces = all'
[root at mercury ~]# service postfix restart
Shutting down postfix:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting postfix:                                          [  OK  ]
[root at mercury ~]# netstat -anp --tcp --udp | grep LISTEN | grep 25
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:25                  0.0.0.0:*
     LISTEN      7816/master
[root at mercury ~]#


I still cannot cannot connect with telnet:
