If you're on residential broadband, a lot of ISPs block incoming traffic to
port 25 in order to try to control spam.  So you're limited when it comes to
running a mail server on DSL or cable modems.

You might try testing it with a telnet connection to port 25 of your IP from
outside your network.  I'm assuming your gateway box is connected directly
to the internet.  If it's behind a router you'll have to port forward 25.
