I've been trying to figure out my problem for hours!  

I have an existing exchange server that had surfcontrol installed... I removed it and set it up with a Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall.

SOMEHOW email is coming in just fine... however from outside of our LAN I can't telnet or connect via Outlook.  I've had several others try from different connections with the same results.

I have many NAT rules on our Watchguard firewall... I've never had a problem.  In fact I can access the  I don't understand how it's not allowing a client to send email through. I'm 99.9% sure it's not the firewall causing the issue.

It sends email from other servers just fine!

I'm stumped!  I have done a lot of trial and error with no luck.  I can provide a lot more information if someone is willing to help me out.  I'm certain it's the Barracuda but I can't figure out what exactly :(
