Problems with receving email from outside

My exchange server is Exchange 2010 SP1 and I have spam filtering from MacAfee
before it hits my ord.  XO Communications is our ISP.  

I can Access OWA, I can send an email to the outside world and can send and receive
 from inside the org, but cannot receive emails from outside the organization.

I was able to verify that the MacAfee spam filter can communicate with my exchange server.

What do i need to check?

Please have a read of my article about Backpressure - you may have run low on disk space:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_4259-Exchange-2007-2010-Backpressure-Quick-Fix.html

Also check your MX records are pointing to your IP Address that you expect it to and check your IP Address is what you think it is on www.whatismyip.com.

Please also check on www.canyouseeme.org to check port 25 is open and you get a SUCCESS message.

Backpressure will creep up on you suddenly - so don't dismiss it - assuming you are replying to my comment not AustinComputerLabs.

Also check your Default Receive connector has Anonymous Permissions enabled.

In the Exchange Management console:
Go to server configuration
Hub Transport
On the bottom right click the recieve connector you set up for Mcafee
Go to the permission groups tab
select anoynmous users click OK.
Then restart exchange transport.
