Running SBS 2003 and Exchange is sending but not recieving

Hello,
I just upgraded an external router (Netgear) on my SBS 2003 server which is hosting its own email. During the switch I changed the local IP address of the server from 192.168.1.128 to 192.168.1.10. I configured the ports for the router to reflect this change. I can access OWA and Remote Desktop fine and I can also send out email fine but, I cannot receive email. Please help!

Did you run the Configure email and internet wizard after making the change?

Presuming that you can telnet to port 25 internally which will confirm that SMTP is working correctly internally I would have to look at the router configuration as the source of the problem.

Make sure that you have forwarded port 25 to your server's new IP address on the Netgear router.

Its so interesting. I changed the IP address for the server back to what I originally switched it from (192.168.1.12*) and now it works. I thought that when you make an IP address change everything else should follow.
 
Thank you for all of your comments and ideas. I appreciate it.

I am sure that SBS has a wizard for changing the IP address which should be used for these types of things. I haven't got an SBS to hand at the moment to check.

The router was the culprit. Running telnet revealed this.
