Problems Setting Up Firewall on OS X to Accept Mail

I'm really struggling with setting up my remote mac mini to receive mail. The problems seem to be in the configuration of ipfw.

Even with:

allow tcp from any to any dst-port 25 in

ipfw is logging a Stealth Mode connection attempt when I attempt to send mail to it.

Any ideas?

UPDATE (2005-07-18): Wasn't the firewall, it was Postfix. Apple's default main.cf file sets inet_interfaces twice and I had made changes to the first instance (which was then overridden by the second)
