Check from www.canyouseeme.org and verify it is showing port 25 is open.

You can also test on www.mxtoolbox.com to ensure your MX record is still correct and see if that website can communicate with your server or not

If your server is behind a NAT firewall device (like a Cisco or a Sonicwall).  You will need to reconfigure the NAT statement to redirect TCP port 25 to the private IP address of the new server.

I am new here but it seems to me that MegaNuk3 directed him to check the MX record in his comment:

Shouldn't MegaNuk3 get the points?
