Write this line in your mm_cfg.py
MTA = 'Postfix'
SMTPHOST = 'aa.bb.cc.dd'

where aa.bb.cc.dd is the IP address you get successful port 25 TELNET.

I guess, this may have happened because default SMTPHOST in Defaults.py is
'localhost' and previously your Postfix would have been listening on all
interfaces (IP + local loopback) and now you are listening only on the IP
and not on localhost!
