an email to it, I get a DNS NDR as shown below:

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

I assume you've checked that DNS "A" and "MX" records exist for the
domain suffix being used for the email, and that the client (and any
intermediate SMTP servers) can resolve them?

turns out DNS hadn't propagated across all
servers. Forcing it fixed the NDR issue.

But now, all the email  sent to the server  is hung in Exchange

I'm not sure how exactly your routing is setup, but it sounds like
things are getting misrouted. Either the Exchange server  doesn't know
how to relay on to your local SMTP server (or you are using one) or you
haven't setup Exchange with the correct Connector to route the messages
directly into a dropbox.
