netstat -ln -p tcp
works in Mac OS X.  One should expect to see either (Postfix
listening on all active addresses), or (which the experiment
using localhost showed is working) plus at least one other suitable IP

If Postfix is listening, then either its logs will have useful information
or more likely the firewall needs attention.

(My usual netstat -ln produced between 2 and 3 screens of output in my
44-line window, hence the -p to reduce output.  Apple passes LOTS of stuff
around via sockets.)
