Question Need help with mail service on Sol 10

Hello All:
I am trying to configure mail service on Solaris 10 and I am unable to send using mailx. It appears the server may not be listening on port 25:

bash-3.00# mconnect
connecting to host localhost (127.0.0.1), port 25
connect: Connection refused

services is configured to use port 25 for smtp:

bash-3.00# grep -i smtp /etc/inet/services
smtp 25/tcp mail

I can't figure out how to get port 25 up and listening.

Thanks.
