Cannot receive EXTERNAL email.

first you need an MX record created in order for the rest of the world to know where your mail server is at. The IP you gave does not respond and the ip in your dns refers to itself for the host name,(see below).

Query for 163.230.63.216.in-addr.arpa type=255 class=1
163.230.63.216.in-addr.arpa CNAME (Canonical Name) 163.160.230.63.216.in-addr.arpa
230.63.216.in-addr.arpa NS (Nameserver) ns1.swbell.net
230.63.216.in-addr.arpa NS (Nameserver) ns2.swbell.net
ns1.swbell.net A (Address) 151.164.1.1
ns2.swbell.net A (Address) 151.164.1.7
