Be careful because the exchange server you are trying to send the email from to your sharepoint instance may be blocking the emails from getting to sharepoint. If this is the case then you need to contact your sharepoint administrators to allow that email to be sent to your sharepoint instance.
You can verify this by sending an email from a client that sets the email server as your sharepoint instance and then send the email directly to that machine. If it works that way then you can try going through your organizations exchange server.
