You need to give at least *some* information about your setup if you
want a useful answer. At a bare minimum: are you seeing the problem with
sendmail or with some mail client, and if so which one? Also, what
authentication methods does the SMTP server support? Note that sending
and receiving mail are two different things, and the fact that one works
doesn't necessarily mean anything to the other.
