My newly installed Exchange 2003 can't receive email

I am having this problem for over a month.  I installed Exchange 2003 with sp2 about a month ago.  BTW, this is the only server I have.  I changed "A" record and "MX" record from the website of my Domain hosting company.  I even talked to their tech support to confirm the changes I made.  Yes, I can send and receive emails fine within my office network, but OWA doesn't work.  When I type "mail.mydomainname.com/exchange", I receive "page not displayed" message.  I have a Netgear router and it's not blocking any ports and I verified with my ISP that port 25 is not filtered.  But when I ping from Telnet, the result indicates that port 25 is filtered.  I need help.
