Unspecified Error (Sent_message): Connection timed out
Above error always happens when sending to our domain but not to all. it only applies to some of the senders.
Senders are normally some gmail, yahoo or hotmail users.

we are using sms for smtp 5.0.1 and using exchange 2003 sp2

I tried to white list the sender also they got the same error.

I was wondering.
should i put our exchange server IP  in the MX record when i never open port 25 for traffic to come in.
I got 2 MX records in external DNS
Preference Host Name IP Address TTL    
5 Antispam server 165.x.xx.xx  3600  ( this one is antispam server - port 25 enable in firewall )
10 Exchange server 165.x.xx.xx 3600 ( this one exchange server - port 25 disable in firewall )
Do you think if there is any problem with this MX record?
