You know I think that my ISP blocks port 25 - i tested this from home not from work.
 
My home IP is 
68.120.198.13
If postfix is working properly then there must be some configuration with MediaWiki that is not right as I do not get the confirmation emails from my Wiki.
 
I know that email is not blocked at work as i have tested JumpBox MediaWiki and the email works perfectly.
