Hi Steve -
My experience is with sendmail - but here's some things I usually check:
First, I would check your DNS entry. You'll want to make sure that you have
an MX record pointing to your server.
Second, I'd make sure you firewall is allowing incoming port 25.
Third, make sure your mailserver will relay incoming mail for your domain.
Hope this gives you somewhere to start...
