Solved

I can't pass various types of traffic to my server.

My server isn't allowing port 25 among other port traffic to get to it.  I DON'T have a firewall installed on it or between it since it is a test server and even when I connect the nic directly to a hub with another PC on the same network and subnet mask, I can't ping it or telnet to port 25.  I can ping from the server to the workstation though.  Any places I should check?  I have eliminated my ISP from the mix when I connected the NIC directly to a hub and had a PC that it could ping.

I could connect to the server via messenger and I could browse the web from that server.

Sorry - it isn't the hub,

I'm running Windows 2003
I don't have any firewall setting under network properties of the NIC enabled.  I think it might have some firewall settings elsewhere I can't find.  I checked under the group policy but couldn't find any filters actually enabled that were preventing the traffice.

I tried the direct connection to the nic - no luck

I finally gave up and reformatted again.  I noticed on reinstall this time, it asked me about installing firewall services so I said no.  I'm not sure where to acccess those as opposed to the ones under network properties, nic, advanced (those are the ones I made sure were unchecked before reformatting along with group  policy filtering properties)
