[Mailman-Users] qfiles building up + (111, 'Connection refused')

The problem is definitely related to the interface settings for python to
sendmail mailing. PHP and Pine both send email successfully to both locally
and remotely hosted addresses. For interest I have found similar errors
reported by Zope users: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/zope/message/2645

Initially smtp was not running. This has now been set-up through Xinetd and
is running:

netstat -a
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State
tcp        0      0 *:pop3                  *:*                     LISTEN
tcp        0      0 *:http                  *:*                     LISTEN
tcp        0      0 ns0.imagineinterne:smtp *:*                     LISTEN

But still messages in qfiles are not being posted, and we get the same error
in logs/smtp:

Dec 20 09:12:03 2001 (10830) All recipients refused: (111, 'Connection
Dec 20 09:12:03 2001 (10830) smtp for 1 recips, completed in 0.002 seconds

Which is not too helpful.
Thoughts please?!

Can you telnet to port 25 on this machine?

I wonder if you've got a firewall rule or something lying around.
