      This question is a little broad, so I may need more information. But I will try and answer your question.

      If you have an internal mail server with IP address, and are translating that to a real public IP address of something like, then mail sent to will go to your internal mail server. If you have a firewall, you are going to have to make sure port 25 is open inbound to your mail server, in most cases to the public IP address.

      For mail to be sent to your domain (i.e. you will need to have an MX record for your mail server registered with your DNS.
