Does your ISP allow incoming SMTP connections? Not all ISPs do,
especially if they don't expect their users to be running servers. See
if you can get someone outside your ISP to try connecting to the SMTP
port on your machine. If they get a connection refusal, then somewhere
along the line, that port is being blocked.
