Default Postfix not receiving mail.

Greetings community,

I have trawled a few of the threads on this forum regarding Postfix not being able to receive mail, and I have changed a few configuration options in main.cf, and master.cf, created a file called /etc/mailname per some suggestions, and I am not winning this battle.

I am worried that I am making all these config changes and that with the problem still existing, that I am barking up the wrong tree.

If I log in via telnet and send a message, the following occurs:

Feb 3 20:46:53 nazgul postfix/smtpd[13216]: connect from nazgul.midnightcoders.co.za[]
Feb 3 20:48:39 nazgul postfix/smtpd[13216]: 9A38718F75C: client=nazgul.midnightcoders.co.za[]

Feb 3 20:49:23 nazgul postfix/smtp[13359]: connect to mail.pixcel.co.za[]: Connection refused (port 25)
Feb 3 20:49:23 nazgul postfix/smtp[13359]: 9A38718F75C: to=<chris@pixcel.co.za>, relay=none, delay=96, delays=96/0.01/0/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to mail.pixcel.co.za[]: Connection refused)
Feb 3 20:49:30 nazgul postfix/smtpd[13216]: disconnect from nazgul.midnightcoders.co.za[]

My main.cf is quite long, are there specific parts I should post ?
I followed the tutorials on HowtoForge for setting up ISP Config 3 on a Centos 5.4 64 bit server.

Thank you for your assistance.
