I found that my new Comcast Cable modem had firewall and some other services going on and that they were causing the problem. Once I had those services turned off, and the modem was just doing simple modem work, and not routing and not being a firewall, the email started flowing back to my email service within 10 minutes. I have my own firewall and the email server is behind this. The Comcast modem was blocking the flow of traffic.
Hope This helps, as I had done all the other work with chaning my DNS, new ISP, etc. Good Luck.
