Need a lot more information as you haven't really provided a great deal to go on.

Basics - Exchange version, Windows version, including service pack and hotfix status. If SBS, indicate that. If the server is not right up to date on the latest service packs, then indicate why, otherwise we will just tell you to go away and update.

Static IP address?
What else is installed on the machine?
Has it ever worked? If so, what has changed?

Put your domain name in to dnsreport.com and see what errors it flags. If it shows a connection error, ask your ISP if they have blocked port 25.

WARNING: One or more of your mailservers is claiming to be a host other than what it really is (the SMTP greeting should be a 3-digit code, followed by a space or a dash, then the host name). If your mailserver sends out E-mail using this domain in its EHLO or HELO, your E-mail might get blocked by anti-spam software. This is also a technical violation of RFC821 4.3 (and RFC2821 4.3.1). Note that the hostname given in the SMTP greeting should have an A record pointing back to the same server. Note that this one test may use a cached DNS record.

68.213.54.36 claims to be non-existent host zeus.eaow.local:
220 zeus.eaow.local Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.1830 ready at Mon, 6 Nov 2006 16:36:34 -0500

MX records cannot contain IP addresses. So if anyone is doing lookups on your MX records for validity they will fail.

The DNS Configuration article on amset.info is mine and should help you get your DNS records sorted out. Make sure that the three components match - MX records, reverse DNS and SMTP Banner.
