Allow Traffic From the Outside

I want to allow traffic (SMTP, Remote Desktop, etc.) from outside the firewall to my internal servers.  Can anybody tell me the commands?  I know one is an acl command and the other is a static  command but I can't find a good example anywhere.  Thanks

Also, to allow Remote Desktop as you mentioned in your post, add an additional "access-list" command that specifies the RDP port, which by default is TCP 3389:

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host outsideip eq 3389

You can use the same syntax for other services (ports) you want to allow inbound for that outside IP address.
