Exchange 2000 can send but not receive.

The Exchange log shows a message trying to be delivered several times in a row, 
after that the server hasn't received a single message.   Server is SP'd and 
patched, no error in the event logs.  I can send and receive a message from 
within the LAN, but not getting external mail.   Inetinfo.exe is not %100; 
actually the server is nearly idle.  Installed Brightmail yesterday and the 
server was working fine until an hour ago so it was running about 23 hours 
without issue.   I uninstalled Brightmail anyway. I can telnet to port 25, 
shows ready.  DnsStuff shows my MX record is good ( 
Firewall shows forwarding to the correct IP and on port 25.   SMTP queues show 
green with nothing waiting.  I've increased logging to the max and there's not 
a single error or warning.   My MX record responds although slowly

Any help is appreciated.
