pop3 exchange not working possible DNS issue

had posted earlier about a bounce message. Fix was I repoint my MX records. That did work but now I do not have external POP3/OWA connections.

The change made was
mail.egearusa.com was pointed at 24 .247.236.3 and now is pointed at 24.247.236.4. Our Barrucuda Spam filter is also on 24.247.236.4 and is receiving mail fine. Our internal exchange is fine as well sending and receiving. It is just our external POP3/OWA connection that no longer works. Please let me know if you need any other info.

You probably need to have your firewall configured to forward port 80 and 443 traffic to you exchange servers instead of you Barrucuda box.

POP3 runs on TCP Port 110, so don't forget that one.

Yes you will need to do some port mapping to send traffic to port 25 to your Barracuda and 110/80 (or 443 if your using https) to your exchange box.

How is your network configured?  Is it as per the image attached?
If not, please describe your environment.
If it is, then you presumably have multiple IP's configured on your Internet Connection.
Do both IP's (24.247.236.4 / 24.247.236.3) come in on the same firewall?

Attached are some screen shots of the firewall configuration.

Cable modem to firewall to core switch from there Barracuda, email server, phone switch, then rest of the network.  

alanhardisty: you are correct in your map.

Are you able to export the config from the Cisco Pix to a text file?
It would give me all the info I need and would tell me how to help you.  You can email it to me if you prefer so that you are not advertising everything (could be a poor config that could be abused).  Details in my profile.

Okay - blew my head with your PIX file - I need to learn more about CISCO commands!
Basically, I can telnet to your IP 24.247.236.3 on port 110, so communications are open, so it would be a DNS issue that is causing you a problem.
You don't have anything pointing in DNS to 24.247.236.3 so you need to add an A record for this IP and a CNAME such as POP3 and/or OWA and then use these to direct your POP3 / OWA to and off you go.

Please see attached screen shot of the DNS configs.

Here is the problem. The external OWA and POP3 worked fine when mail.egearusa.com was pointed at 24.247.236.3 but it was causing some of the mail to bounce as well since all the mail flows through the barracuda 24.247.236.4. So we changed the mail to .4 and have not had any bouncing anymore.

So now that I have a pop3.egearusa.com pointed at 24.247.236.3 how do I check on the inside that is pointed to the pop3/ OWA?

These entries in your PIX Config allow the ports and I can telnet to port 110 and get through to your POP3 server. OWA will use https, so you should be fine if you use https://pop3.egearusa.com/exchange - I get a login prompt (see attached)
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host 24.247.236.3 eq pop3
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host 24.247.236.3 eq https
