Sendmail, incoming mail.

I need som help with sendmail, i got the outgoing mail working even from outlook on my wks, but why wont the server allow incoming mail if itīs not from my own domain?
sending mail from user > user works fine and i can get the mail with outlook, but incoming from ex does not end up in my inbox, my guess is that the server rejects the mails, but where can i set up rules that make it accept incoming mail?

1. check firewall rules and if ok
2. check the status of the mail sent from the, (i believe you get any status when the mail is not send properly) or just
3. use telnet to connect to smtp port of your box and write down the mail (if you know nothing about smtp protocol read some about it is really easy) - then you will see the status (i.e. the reason)
