Hi,

SBS 2008 box with everything working fine.  ISP provided a new static IP but now cant access RWW externally and incoming mail no longer works(can send ok).

Modem connects fine and shows new WAN IP.  I have updated the A records to point ot the new IP with our hosting company.  What am I missing.  Does SBS 2008 store or require the WAN IP somewhere?

It may take 24 hours for the replication of the MX record to take place...

can you use below to verify your MX record with new IP?

I know it may take 24 hours but if I ping the mail server externally it resolves to the new IP correctly

as everyone said, you need to check on your MX and run the Connect to the internet wizard again and that will fix the RWW.

If the above doesn't work run "Fix My Network", this may help as well.

Have you run the 'Connect to Internet' script from the SBS Console - this may help as it can suggest if there are issues with mapping etc.
