brackets will make it use the A record or IP address straight, rather
than asking postfix to figure out the MX record first.

do

  host my.isp.mail.server.com

and obtain the IP from the result. then, do these two:

  ping <ipaddress>
  telnet <ipaddress> 25

report what you see. also, what's the entries in /var/log/mail.log,
and the output of the `mailq` command?
