Everything has been working fine since I REDID the server from an intial intstallation. However, as of 10AM this morning, nothing is send or receive. I have rebooted three times. Compared it to another client's Exchange 2013.

This is one of the errors that keeps coming up:
Inbound authentication failed with error UnexpectedExchangeAuthBlob for Receive connector

I try to stop and restart the transport service, and the service will not start again once stopped.

Yes it is on a domain controller. I got the Exchange server to send and receive but it only lasted 2 hours. I finally got it now to send to external. I have it able to send and receive internally.

Externally .. different story. External receiving does not work.

is the connection from the outside making it to the exchange server?
from the outside do you get a response on port 25 through telnet?

you can also try the remote connectivity analyzer

Telnet I get a response from just fine. Remote Connectivity works. no bounce backs.

Have you got anonymous enabled on the default receive connector?
Did you install Exchange 2013 SP1? If so there is a known issue with transport, but if internal email is working then it isn't that.
It is something with your receive connectors.

It's CU3 not SP1. I even created new connectors. I thought it was DNS but not and then I tried the cert but no

If you created new connectors then if it isn't done correctly you will get the results you are seeing.
Check this blog posting for more details on what you may have done.
