Wow, that is some amateur-hour stuff right there. Looks like they probably hired some guy's kid to set it up because "they know computers" who then proceeded to the grab some pre-built Linux distro with an email server and Joomla pre-installed and configured through some piece-of-crap 'Wizard'.

Given that absolutely nothing is blocked, I have the feeling that the firewall was disabled and the only reason why ports are showing as 'closed' is that there is nothing actually running on those ports.

I doubt that the machine is actually being used as a Honey Pot since several high-number ports that are very rarely attacked are open while some well-known and frequently attacked ports aren't.
