I would recommend the following settings for localhost:

Connect:                       RELAY
GreetPause:                    0
ClientRate:                    0
ClientConn:                    0

Do not use "localhost", "localhost.localdomain", or 
"localhost.localhost" by name, because it will open you up to being an 
open relay and as soon as the spammers figure out that Fedora is 
configured that way I bet there will lots of problems with open-relay 
once more.
