Default Mail setup issue

I'm running Debian Lenny.
I want to setup e-mail for my server.
I followed this page of this guide:

However, When I telnet to localhost on port 25 and then type ehlo localhost
I receive no messages although it does appear to connect fine.

(side note)
In bind my hostname is set to and hostname as well as hostname -f show but I want my mail to be
(/side note)

Do I need to set an MX record? If so, where? I run my own nameservers.

Is there a way I can troubleshoot this issue without uninstalling the apts, I cant risk jeopardizing my apache install.
Any help would be great.

Thank you,
