Bellsouth stated they haven't and don't block port 25 for their
customers and that I should be ok to send and receive email at will. 
I think it's working now. I'm now getting some returns on my test
messages. Guess it just took a while. I'll give another minute or so to
see if this keeps up.

It makes no difference and I don't think this has anything thing to do
with your problem of not being able to receive mail, the MX record used
by other people is hosted on an EXTERNAL DNS server, have you contacted
Bellsouth to see if they block incoming port 25 on their routers.

This will come across as a novice type question but here goes. I've got
2 host records created in my internal DNS; one for the server's Netbios
name and the other for "mail", or I currently have MX
records created for each of these. Now I'm sure this is NOT the way to
do this, so my question is which MX record do I keep?
