Default Email appearing sent-- never gets to destination

I used a clean install of fedora core 6, Ispconfig, and uebiMiau, the web server is working fine, now that my cheap ass finally paid the extra to get my isp to open ports 80 and 25. When I send a mail through the uebiMiau webmail, it says mail sent, doesnt give an undeliverable message and the mail never gets to the destination. I am an admitted noob and appreciate any help.

Dou you get any entries in your mail logfile, when you send a email to your server? If yes, please post the messages in the logfile, if not, please check that the MX record of the domain points to your external IP address.

Till I checked the mail log and no record of any incoming, in the domain name the mx record is directed to my IP, when i send a mail from yahoo this is the response i get [quote] 24.185.88.195 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 554 5.7.1 <web1_rodney@xxxxxxxxx.com>: Relay
access denied
Giving up on 24.185.88.195.

any ideas? I scanned my ports and they are listed as closed, but not stealthed.

Is port 25 open in the firewall? And please check that the MX record is correct:
Code:
dig mx xxxxxxxxx.com

port 25 is open and i checked the firewall which is open as well-- the box itself is on dmz at the moment while i try to get this thing working properly, firewall and selinux are off, and ispconfig firewall has the port forwarded as default.
