Changed our IP Address Win2K3 server not sending or receiving email

I have just switched us over to a new ISP which gave us a new IP Address, everything seems to be working fine except for our email, I cannot send or receive any, the sent mails just get stuck in queue on the server, its a Win2K3 server, I had all our information (MX NS records, etc changed last week to reflect the change to be made today.

I'm not sure if its an exchange issue or not. Im not sure where to start troubleshooting.

Actually, after a reboot of the server it seems to be working, just slightly slower

I did notice our outlook web access may not be working like it use to, I cannot use mail.ourdomain.com/exchange to access it. I need to use the new IP 123.123.123.456/exchange

It almost looks like mail.ourdomain.com is not resolving to the correct IP...I did a ping and it shows our old IP

I've got it all figured out, like a dumbass I forgot that I had set up the new IP and DNS info as mail2.ourdomain.com so that I would have our old info and new info in the DNS records temporarily, so the old stuff points to just "mail" and not "mail2".
