Do you try to send an email to distribution list or mailbox? For distribution list to receive an email from external, you must un select the require authentication on distribution list.

If for mailbox, does it happen to all external email account, not just gmail account? If that a case, what is your routing mail from external to internal.

Internet > mail gateway > edge > hub > mailbox?

looks like you configured your send connector to use GMAIL as your smart host, you cannot do that, google will never accept to relay your emails

Does this is a new exchange 2010 installation? If yes, make sure the "anonymous" is selected on default receive connector.

"anonymous" is only related to inbound has nothing to do with outbound,

the errror is clear
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain citadelplaza.com [143.95.77.106].

GOOGLE tried, so your emails are routed through google, what are your "External DNS" ?

Oh sorry I misread your OP sorry and sorry to suriyaehnop

Your MX record is pointing to Name:    hostmaster.citadelplaza.com
Address:  143.95.77.106

and this IP is replying by
220 Welcome to Bamboo SMTP server.


Who is Bamboo ??? is that your Public Ip ?

here the results are
citadelplaza.com
        primary name server = ns1.bamboo.arvixe.com
        responsible mail addr = hostmaster.citadelplaza.com
        serial  = 2016110703
        refresh = 3600 (1 hour)
        retry   = 600 (10 mins)
        expire  = 1209600 (14 days)
        default TTL = 86400 (1 day)


if you just did the change maybe they didn't replicate yet

by telnet and i go the
250 2.0.0 uA7EbPax014215-uA7EbPb0014215 Message accepted for delivery

so it is just DNS replication it needs time

OK I think I found your problem

mail.citadelplaza.com   MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.citadelplaza.com

your MX record is for mail.citadelplaza.com and not for citadelplaza.com.

in the hostname configuration of your MX in godaddy you should have an @ record and not mail

Dear Akhater
 I have received your mail yesterday , but still cant receive any mail from other domains including Hotmail or gmail , is this related to DNS replication time , also i would like to clarify that my domain website hosting on hostmonster , my domains registered with godaddy , and my mail server hosting in my organization , so should i point A record to my mail server or my domain ?
thanks

your MX Record is still wrong
> citadelplaza.com
Server:  lebanon-dc1.lebanon.ptg
Address:  172.19.100.100

citadelplaza.com
        primary name server = ns1.bamboo.arvixe.com
        responsible mail addr = hostmaster.citadelplaza.com
        serial  = 2016110705
        refresh = 3600 (1 hour)
        retry   = 600 (10 mins)
        expire  = 1209600 (14 days)
        default TTL = 86400 (1 day)

In Godaddy make sure that the hostname of your MX is @ check the screen shot i sent yesterday and send me a screenshot of your godaddy config

when google is trying to deliver the message it is not talking to your server, it is talking to another mailserver located at hostmaster.citadelplaza.com and that server is not configured to accept emails for your domain
