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.

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
