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        *
     LISTEN      7816/master
[root at mercury ~]#

I still cannot cannot connect with telnet:

✈dcl:~$ telnet sharingcenter.eu 25
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
✈dcl:~$ telnet mail.sharingcenter.eu 25
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: No route to host

Why might that be?
