a) check if your dns are correct:
# dig yourdomain.com mx
# telnet mail.yourdomain.com 25
does it reply or not?
check if your mta is cofigured correctly:
telnet mail.yourdomain.com 25 # write:
mail from: aryeh.friedman at gmail.com
rcpt to: example_user at yourdomain.com
does it reply with a
2XX code? with a 4XX code? 5XX code?
b) doesn't reply
does mail.yourdomain.com resolve to your mailserver's IP?
is your daemon runnig?
if you give us more REAL information (domain, ip, etc) we can hel you more.
