What is the network gear you have router/firwall etc ? also mention which brand. Is this static ip already configured for anything else ?

Cheers,

Do you have some sort of internet firewall/router, like a linksys or something?

You will need to setup port forwarding for your NAT.
(Network Address Translation)
This is on your router or firewall.
You will need to tell the router/firewall to forward all port 80 traffic to you internal IP.
If you are using SSL then you will also need to forward port 443.
You will get options to forward TCP and UDP.  You only need the TCP.
On my Qwest DSL Modem/router it's called Port Forwarding and it's in the advanced setup area.

Here is the netgear page on port forwarding:

Hope this helps.

*Also

The IMAP Server on your LAN test you have NAT (Default gateway) and  dns resolution (A DNS server that can resolve internet requests.

(Windows) Start menu --> run --> ping 66.249.89.99
(Windows) Start menu --> run --> ping www.google.com

If you still do not get connectivity, then drop the personal firewall on the IMAP Server for the sake of testing if you deem it safe. The Windows Firewall is best disabled in the services if you do not need MS ICS. Otherwise drop it via the control panel.

To test connectivity to the IMAP server from a remote location (without having to worry about email client settings), you would use the telnet command; again; you would need NAT; test is above for that remote computer.
(Windows) Start menu --> run --> telnet x.x.x.x 143
