Have you just set up the server?
Do you have other users connected to your mail server? Can they get mail?

A home network?
Do you have a domain registered to you?
Do you have a static IP connected to your domain name in a proper DNS record?
Are the paths set for port forwarding in your firewall/router?

I cannot send mail nor can I receive mail.  I have a domain registered.  I do have a static IP from my ISP.  

I am not sure if I have the proper DNS records.  I am allowing SMTP traffic through the firewall/router.  Is there another port that I need to allow through?  I think the problem lies within DNS.  I am not sure of the correct DNS records to make.

Normally, you should be able to get help from your ISP to have your DNS records taken care of by them, possibly for a small fee. You need to have an MX record to be able to receive mail (pointing to your IP), among others.
