In Exchange 2003, Public Folders are not receiving internet emails, but they can receive internal emails!
What I have done so far:
1- Folders are mail enabled  
2- Anonymous Permission as a Contributor
3-Under the properties of the folder the "Delivery Restrictions" is grayed-out because still under mixed mode.
Basically everything looks fine to me my little knowledge!

I'm not sure if this article is related:

Thank you in advance.

That article simple changes the format of the messages, nothing more. It is something I tend to do as standard for my servers. It doesn't affect the actual delivery of email.

Did the public folder get an email address automatically?

When you send an email to the public folder from outside, what happens?
Do you have message tracking enabled so you can see what Exchange does with the message?

That isn't an Exchange message.
Do you have something scanning your email before it arrives? Does your email come in directly or via something else?

Yes we have email gateway (SurffControl) as email filter.

I would check that first to see if it will allow messages to the public folder through. It would appear to be blocking them.

I'll check it tomorrow or after eventhough I'm not sure where is the option for the public folder.
Thanks Simon...will let you know.

Simon you are absolutely right. It was the email filter (SurfControl). I had to configure the Directory Harvest Detection to exclude the email address which doesn’t have associated mailbox with it.

Thanks again Simon
