Step one:          Make sure the new server can surf the Internet
Step two:          From a cmd prompt on the new server, run nslookup
Step three:        In nslookup, type set typ=mx
Step four:          If you want to send an e-mail to user@xxxxxxxxxx,
Step five:           Note the MX record with the lowest preference
number (usually 10)
Step six:           Exit out of nslookup and type telnet <result from
step five> 25
                        For example, telnet 25
Step seven:       If you get a 220 response, then your server CAN see
another mail server on port 25 - which is good.  If you don't get a 220
response, then that's your problem!
So, that's a long winded way to ask if you can telnet to port 25 of a
remote mail server.  So can you?
