SMTP 550 Error - Urgent!!

Please help me figure out what is going on.
Exchange 2000 SP3 on a Windows 2000 Server.

I can send email from my domain out to the internet but I am unable to receive any email.

Below is the message you would receive if you tried sending an email to my domain.

Nothing that I know of has changed on the exchange server since it last worked perfectly a few days ago.  I have scanned for viruses, spyware, ect.

Please shoot me in the right direction, not getting email really hurts.

Well the first thing out of order is most certainly your DNS records.  If you run brothers.com through www.dnsreport.com you'll see the problem.  First and foremost, your primary MX record doesn't even accept e-mail for your domain, second the secondary MX is set to a loopback address.

You need to get your MX records squared away before anything else can be tested.  Make sure your primary MX record point to your Exchange Server or routers public firewall.  Once that is reported as fixed you should see a lot of other things clear up.  Also, make sure you get the respective PTR (Reverse Lookup) records in place as well.
