I have netgear fvs114 firewall router I just obtained 5 static IP addresses and I have two of them pointing to the server and the mx records DNS are pointing to the correct addresses.  I can view the sites via the server when I type the domains in the browser but no one else can get to the sites.  I know it has to be the router so can anyone help?

To the best of my knowledge your FVS114 only supports a single static public IP. You configure this on the "Internet IP address" section of the "basic setup" page, and it only provides the option for a single WAN/public IP.
You could as another option, use the same static IP for all traffic, and use port forwarding to forward web traffic (port 80) to the web server, SMTP traffic (port 25) to the mail server, etc. Following site will outline port forwarding for your router with different services:

Well I went back to one static IP because I didn't like the security on the netopia router.  Most people think a nat is a firewall but thats only somewhat true.  I have decided to set it up with host headers and wild card certs.  Thanks guys

Not sure I follow:
"Got it its not the netgear its the modem thanks"
"I didn't like the security on the netopia router"
I take it you had Server=> Netgear => Netopia ?
As mentioned I am doubtful those devices will support multiple public static IP's.
