I am having a problem with SMTP relay into our new email server. The server, mail.domain.com, is able to send messages without a problem.

- I have setup domain.com with the registrar.
- Set up an A record for mail.domain.com >
- Setup an MX record for    domain.com > messages handled by > mail.domain.com
- double checked all port 25 SMTP traffic goes to server

However, messages still don't get through. HOw can I narrow down / diagnose / solve the problem?
