are you on a cable modem? sounds like you are if your from
@home.com .....many @home networks have port 25 filtered
along with a bunch of other ports. you may want to email
@home support to get a list of ports that are filtered on
the network segment your on.

im betting thats what it is, exim's default configs from
potato at least do listen on all interfaces.
