have you changed where your A records for your domain to point to your new IP address?
Assuming that you are running exchange 2003 as well,

Start Exchange System Manager.

Note After you install Exchange Server in an Exchange 2003 organization or in an Exchange 2000 organization, Exchange System Manager does not automatically display routing groups and administrative groups. You must configure the Exchange organization to display routing groups and administrative groups.
For more information about how to configure Exchange System Manager to display routing groups and administrative groups in Exchange server, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Expand the Administrative Groups container. To do so, click the plus sign (+) to the left of the container.
Click the administrative group that you want to work with, and then expand it.
Expand the Routing Groups container.
Click the routing group that you want to work with, and then expand it.
Click the Connectors container. Right-click the Connectors container, and then click New.
Click SMTP Connector.

Are you having a Smart host? Then just change the Public IP natted to the smart host to the new IP

thank you for your help

one other question

the exchange server was already sending and recieving emails before the change of ISP.  if there was no smtp connector set up how would outbound emails have been sent?

thank you so much for your help.  i am unsure as to why there was no connector already set up but after following your instructions managed to set up one for the new isp and all is working correctly now.
