2 mail servers behind firewall


I have 2 mail servers behind Cisco firewall ,both the mail servers have different domain configured on them ,but when I try to send emails from server1 to server2 it dont go and also I am not able to receive emails in between two servers,after checking logs I found that the two server are not able to connect each other on SMTP port with public IP .

I am not able to connect any of my server with public IP behind firewall.

Is there any solution for this?
