Just out of curiosity can you telnet to your exchange server from outside of your network on the extenal IP address on port 25 (example: telnet <external IP Address> 25 ?  This would be step one.  If you are using encryption you might not be able to read the session info but you should definately get something.  If you can't that would suggest there is a firewall configuration issue.
