Default Postfix not responding to telnet

Well, this setup just isn't working for me. As you can see in my title, Postfix does not respond to telnet -l sshadmin localhost 25

One question I have right off the bat is, should my host name be smtp.sabotix.com (My mx record is set to that) or sabotix.com? I've tried both, neither seem to work.

/etc/postfix/main.cf:
Code:
Removed by user
netstat -tulp
Code:
[root]/ # netstat -tulp

As you can see, I changed the quota to a big int to have larger quotas

/var/log/maillog and /var/log/debug and /var/log/messages are all empty

/etc/init.d/postfix start stop and reload all work fine

So why won't it respond in telnet (Or anything else)

I've also done everything in http://www.postfix-book.com/debugging.html and everything on my system seems OK, no idea what to do next, there is only so much Google can tell you
