Using static PAT in PIX515E (6.3)

I can connect my mail server (inside) from outside on port 25
But I can not connect from inside to outside mail server on port 25.

That means I can receive mail from outside but can not send mail to outside.

I have used the following configuration on my PIX

Static(dmz,outside) tcp 25 25
Access-list INBOUND permit tcp any host eq 25

Please suggest me how can i configure Static PAT for sending and receiving mail i.e for port 25.
