If you have 2 network cards on the same LAN then this may be causing you a few problems.
Disable one of the cards and run through the Internet Connection Wizard again, but this time run the setup for 1 network card and IP device on network for internet access.

Also check that your sonicfirewall is set to forward port 25 to the NIC that you have left enabled.

Did running the internet connection wizard re-enable windows firewall?

That's a good shout with 2 NIC's this is more than likely.

In a 2NIC setup, you need them set as follows:

NIC1 (internal switch)
 IP: 192.168.40.254
 Subnet: 255.255.255.0
 Gateway: Blank

 DNS1: 192.168.40.254 (Self)

NIC2 (Sonicwall)
 IP: 192.168.30.254
 Subnet: 255.255.255.0
 Gateway: 192.168.30.1

 DNS1: 192.168.40.254 (SBS)

The Sonicwall and SBS internal networks must be on different subnets for packets to route properly!

Or, if SBS is NOT providing RRAS based firewall/routing duties and the Sonicwall is, DISABLE NIC2 and run the Change Server IP Wizard using SBS' internal IP again in the wizard.

That is, change the IP to the same one to reseat the IP in the appropriate places.

From there, run the CEICW in a 1NIC scenario!

That's why I suggested changing to the single card scenario, if Sonic Wall is doing the firewall then Windows shouldn't need to?
