Check the SMTP VS' IP address that it's bound to, since you changed the IP. 
Could be it's bound to the wrong IP...

Hi there, I seem to be having a problem ever since we changed our internet 
account over. We used to be using a PPPoE connection through our router as to 
avoid problems with ISA trying to deal with a dynamic IP. However, since we 
changed this evening, my mail will not go outside the local network. Our ISP 
was enforcing port 25 filtering which was removed when we switched to a static 
circuit(before this, we were relaying mail through their SMTP server). Any 
outbound mail is now getting hung up in the SMTP connector. I pull up the 
connector which has status of retry and find messages. They all say queued with 
a 0 count on the failures, so this tells me that there is no connection to the 
receiving SMTP server, my logs show nothing useful. I can however, telnet into 
other SMTP servers outside our network, that tells me that our ISA server is 
not filtering out the SMTP connection. I seem to have run out of ideas at this 
time, probably forgetting the most basic of things at this point, maybe this is 
either telling me it's time to go to bed and deal with it tomorrow, or to just 
put another pot of coffee on. Any help would be appreciated. TIA - Marc
