User can't send or receive emails but all services are running

Exchange 2003 SP2 on a Windows 2003 SP1

Users can open their mailbox - they can send a message externally, but the message never arrives.
I can send a message to my mailbox from yahoo.com, but I never receive it

Port 25 is open

IS are up and running

Relaying is set as the default.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

SMTP addresses are correct....

I turned Message Tracking on - sent a message from Outlook and I see it....it states SMTP Store Driver: Message Submitted from Store

I could wait any longer - I'm not talking about you, but I was itching myself to get this up and running - I havent had email in 2 days.

I formatted the machine (after extracting the data) and redid everything.....

everything is working perfectly.
