    Hi prince. Try telnetting your server on 25. In other word get the command line window and
    > telnet yourServerName 25
    > telnet yourServersExternalIPaddress 25
    That's for a start.

      Check also logs is not full and hard drive is not out of space. That I was experienced a couple of weeks ago.
      if logos is full and hard drive out of space.. the DB will automatically dismounted itself.

        In addition to the other comments made.

        Can internal users access their mailbox via OWA? Can internal users email each other? I would double check that you are not on any spam lists and that all Exchange realted services that should be started, are.

        Consult the windows logs as well as Exchange logs.

        The Exchange 2003 Best Practices analyser tool may shed some light. Verify that your domain isn't blacklisted either.
