Has this only just happened recently? Have you tried the message flow troubleshooting assistant in the Toolbox?Does the Exchange 2010 server have it's own Send Connector? Are any Send Connectors set to deliver to a Smart Host or do they send direct to the Internet via DNS?

Uninstall AV / EPO / firewall off the Exchange 2010 server and then see if messages start flowing or not.

Does your server have more than 1 NIC installed?

Yes, sounds like you might need to reinstate the port 25 rule on your firewall.

Have you tested telneting out to external domains on port 25 from other machines and not just your exchange server or should they be blocked anyway?

You might want to check that NIC to see if it has multiple IP addresses assigned.  "ipconfig /all" should show if there are multiple IP addresses assigned.

You can find MX records for other domains with Www.mxtoolbox.com and then try telnet on port 25 from your network to that server (MX record)
