Did you have sendmail working on this box before replacing it with
postfix?  If not, perhaps the firewall is blocking port 25 inbound?
(Which would only account for the failure to receive mail, not send.)

That does sounds like about all you really must do to get it working.
What, if any failures are you getting in /var/log/maillog?  What is
the output of "postconf -n" ?
