SMTP Relay problems

I'm having an SMTP relay problem and I'm at I'm about at my wits end.  This is a fairly simple (and small) setup.  All the Exchange 2007 roles are on one box.  There is a firewall, but I've blown the necessary ports open, and as you can see by the following exchange 2007 server log the connection is being made.  I have tried several things including now using IP addys instead of domain names, and changing the timeout from 10 to 15 minutes.  Please note I've filtered the IP addy and e-mail addy on this log:

What is the problem? Are you relaying too much mail, or not enough?

Do you have a Intrusion Prevention System in place?
It might falsely identify the traffic from your exchange server as unsafe. In this case you should check for an update for this system.

No IPS in place.  As you can see I just simply get a timeout and this happens from every device I've attempted so far.

I have allowed anonymous access to the connector.  You can see that initial connectivity is made to the server it just times out.  I also tried a telnet on port 25, and i get the 220, but no feedback on a ehlo, helo, or rset command and then it eventually times out.
