We are using Exchange 5.5 on Win2K Server behind Proxy 2.0 and we can send Internet email but we can't receive it.  I can't see any errors on the servers that would explain it.  Any ideas?

Check with who ever is hoasting your domain.  If they are down, you will still be able to send but everyone who sends to you will get unknown user returned mail.

You also need to check and make sure that the SMTP binding to the proxy is still working.  If the proxy has been rebooted, you may need to restart the Exchange IMC.

wspcfg.ini in Exchsrvr\Connect\Msexcimc\Bin and also in Exchsrvr\Bin.
They tend to go adrift in the case of reboots. Have a look at TechNet Q181847.
It was always happening to me when I had a server in your configuration.

That was it. You say "when I had a server in your configuration", since I'm fairly new at this, what other configurations could I use?
