Default Cannot telnet localhost 110 to Fedora 8 Server from PCs on LAN

I used Falco's article : Fedora 8 Server Setup: LAMP, Email, DNS, FTP, ISPConfig (a.k.a. The Perfect Server) to setup a server for a client. Everything went well and works fine.

The server is online and behind a firewall/router with the neccessary ports open.

We can retrieve webmail and MUA mail from the internet, but trying to MUA (Eudora 7.1) from a windows xp pc on the internal LAN times out.

On the xp pc I tried telnet to localhost 110 and telnet 110 but it never connects. I can telnet on the server itself and it responds correctly.

I figure it has something to do with dovecot.conf but not sure as I have not used dovecot before.

Any ideas/suggestions appreciated.
