Mail Server not receiving emails

I am trying to setup and email server in conjunction with my web server. The web server is Fedora 4 / Apache and the email server is CentOS 4. I used qmailtoaster to install and configure qmail on the email server. I can send emails from either machine using the email server. I use a free dns services that I use to point my domain name to my static IP at home. The router then points port 80requests to the web server and port 25 /110 to the email server. The MX record for my mail is pointed to the same IP Address. Obviously I am missing or screwing up a major piece to not allow my email server to recieve the email. Anyone able to help me out

Ignore this...used and email trace program to see the email was be routed correctly, but found out as of January of this year, Bellsouth is blocking incoming port 25 now as well. So I guess so much for that idea.
