Something else I forgot to mention some ISP's(read comcast) don't like 
you running servers on your home computers unless your are paying for a 
commercial account.  So those ports are often blocked/filtered.  So if 
you are having trouble you may want to check with your isp and make sure 
that they are not tampering with those settings to prevent you from 
running a server.  Also I found that many email servers block mail 
coming from comcast commercial ips because of spam concerns(I had to 
switch to using smart host, then linode(because connectivity issues), 
and hopefully soon UTOPIA).
