Default Problem with Telnet Localhost 25

Hi,
Newbie here, followed the Perfect Server and Virtual Domain setup to the letter (almost).

I can

Code:
telnet localhost 110
and get the response

Code:
root@aladdin:~# telnet localhost 110
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.
but when i do

Code:
telnet localhost 25
i get this

Code:
root@aladdin:~# telnet localhost 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Now, i checked to make sure the response worked in between setting up Perfect Server Ubuntu 7.10 and Virtual Users and Domains Postfix.... and all worked fine. But when i got to saslauthd stuff, i think thats when it went pear shaped.

here is my main.cf


Code:
# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version


# Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.

Seems like you are running debian i think postfix will log to mail.error mail.info and mail.log.

I dont think it will log the word error.

Try tailing the logs then telnet to the server
Code:
tail -f /var/log/mail.*
You should see some thing like
Code:
warning: process /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd pid 1326 exit status 1

Feb  6 13:48:26 aladdin postfix/master[19445]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling
from the above output, i can tell a few things...but maybe you could shed some more light on it, especially this:
Code:
Feb  6 13:48:25 aladdin postfix/smtpd[20693]: fatal: parameter "smtpd_recipient_restrictions": specify at least one working instance of: check_relay_domains, reject_unauth_destination, reject, defer or defer_if_permit
Kind Regards
James

You need this in your main.cf file
Code:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
It is missing.
