You could set up a BIND server with views inside your LAN: http://www.howtoforge.com/two_in_one_dns_bind9_views

I did a telnet on port 25 and sent an email through SMTP commands and it worked fine. This was inside my network. Now if I am outside the network, with my laptop, I cannot telnet to port 25 at all. Why is that? Router port is open and the linux firewall port is also open.
Please make sure that your ISP doesn't block port 25.
