Default Another Cant recieve mail

Have reinstalled twice now from susie 10.1 perfect-setup. Searched for the last several days before posting here.
Can send mail fine and mail is not returned to sender when sending to my email address. I also see no maillog files generated when I send or recieve.
Have Server set to Save log and maildir checked.

Output of netstat -tap below:

Did you install ISPConfig on this server or did you reinstall postfix with yast after you installed ISPConfig? The includes of the ISPConfig postfix configuration files are missing.

Please add:
virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
at the end of your main.cf file and restart postfix.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Till, I am sorry I did not include the last two entries when I posted my mail.cf file. Those 2 lines are the last two lines in the file already.
My last two installs were from the perfect set-up on a completely clean box.

Just noticed something that may be of interest.
While inside the network I can telnet to the box on both ports 25 and 110
From the outside world cannot telnet on port 25, 110 only.
My routers ports are open however I am using comcast cable. I called them today and got usless information as who I spoke with does not even understand the concept of ports. I was given another number to call but that number was no good.

I am assuming comcast is blocking incoming connections on port 25. Is there any work around on this? Anyone have similar issues?

After an hour or so on the phone with comcast I convinced them to force a new ip address for me. They said they were not blocking post 25 but after I got a new public IP all is fine.
