POP3 Port 110 binds to local adapter address

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am having a problem with my server.  I have two network adapters one for internet access which is assigned a public IP and the other for internal network traffic.  To share the internet connection I am using Routing and Remote Access.  This all works fine.  However I found that my POP3 port 110 is binding to the internal address instead of the external address.  I am using SmarterMail for my mail server.  I have tried disabling the internal card and rebooting but it doesn't seem to change the bindings for the port.  Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem is?
