Methinks you likely don't have Postfix started up.  All SMTP daemons run 
on TCP 25 if they want to talk to anyone else.  Check your process 
listing (ps ax) and see if you see something like this:

   15765 ?        S      5:03 /usr/libexec/postfix/master

If you don't, then you need to start up Postfix ("man postfix" should 
give you what you need).
