If it's only certain domains you are having problems receiving mail from, then I would be starting to point the finger of blame at their mail servers. Unless you've programmed your server to block mail from these domains (you would know if you had), and because some domains can send mail to you just fine, I don't think it's an issue at your end.

It would be useful if you could give us an NDR which is received by the sending domain.

Dear tigtermatt,  Thank you so much for your reply.

actually, the sender do not receive any error messages (NDR) after they sent out the email to our domain. which mean they don't know they cannot send email to our domain. they also create an account for me and i have tried to use this account by webmail to send email to our domain and proved no any error return and of cos our domain also cannot receive anything. but it work if i use outlook with my local smtp server. is there any tools can test thier domain and our domain ? thank you!

That's highly unusual. Can you enable message tracking on your Exchange server, then try sending a message to yourself and see if it appears in a message tracking search? If it does or it doesn't, that gives us somewhere to start. Instructions for enabling and using this feature are at http://www.amset.info/exchange/message-tracking.asp.
