Does the Exchange server use the IP address of the RRAS server as configure as its gateway server?

This would be a requirement just incase the Exchange server uses another gateway (or has no gateway set).

Where is the public (internet) computer you are using to run the tests. You mention that the Exchange system is working correctly, I would therefore think that there is something blocking your port 25 connection from your client computer to the Exchange server's public IP address.

Have you any firewall software installed that is blocking port 25 communicaitons?
Can you connect to any other companis mail systems on port 25 (to prove that it is not your Exchange system/ client causing the problem)
Are there any other devices in between you and the Exchange public address that may be filtering or blocking the communications?

Hi fishadr,

  Thanks for your reply, I found out my problem , by default  my service provider blocked SMTP port 25. now my service provider given proper permission. now i can connect SMTP port 25 through telnet and email also sent and receive without any trouble.

This is a common problem - many ISP's block port 25 connections or restrict their usage. Using Telnet usually helps to diagnose if they are indeed doing so, or if the problem lies elsewhere.
