I am trying to set up a Microsoft Exchange Server.  I have Windows 2003 server running.  I have pointed my mx record to my static ip.  I can send email, but I can't receive.

put your smtp domain name in http://www.checkdns.net/quickcheckdomainf.aspx and check if it reports any errors

Have you placed the MX record in a DNS server on the internet? You normally need to get your ISP or hosing company to do this so external mail can find your server.

I clicked on the link and did a DNS check.  It looks like I have a couple errors.  One says Error connecting to mail server stridekids.com port 25: connection refused.
Another says answer from dns1.earthlink.net: host smtp.stridekids.com not found and the last error says Some of the MX do not work properly.
Do I just contact earthlink?

make sure ISP is forwarding emails to your Static IP Router and then router is configured to send the mails to your exchange server.

I finally got this.  Thanks to all the good suggestions.  It was all my own stupidity.  I had the port forwarded on my router but I I overlooked forwarding the port on my modem.  Thank you all for the suggestions.
