Receiving mail from Postfix server

I am playing with mail servers.  I have just read the docs at,
googled *some* for help, and installed Postfix.  The postfix server is
on my intranet.  The configuration and setup of Postfix itself was not so
bad.  It's running, and [I believe, from the docs I've read] configured
adequately.  When I send mail from the postfix box, the username/domain
are rewritten properly, but I see:

connect to []: connection refused.

The box in question (joloxbox) is running stock sendmail.  I have found
docs on how to set up sendmail as a server.  I would like to know where
to go for help on how to make sendmail "know" that I want it to listen
for smtp on port 25, and that (the Postfix server)
is where it will get its mail.  

sockstat on joloxbox shows sendmail listening on port 25.  I am confused.
Would someone offer some advice on config/docs?  Thank you all.
