Bizarre Authentication Problem

I am not able to successfully authenticate anyone in the office to their Outlook pop account. In addition to not being able to authenticate to the pop servers web interface.  Try this anywhere outside of the office and all accounts authenticate fine.
When I tracert to mail server I end up at correct IP address.

Are there any event logs on the client,exchange or DC that raise any attention?

Can you supply some details about your infrastructure (i.e.  DC and mail on the same server)

It sbs2003 but we never hosted our own mail. I will check for logs. The weird thing is the web portal to the pop server also fails.

Did your public IP address change?
Some times hosted services have allow/exclusion ip list for security measures.  If they do and your public address changed this would be the root cause. Can you confirm this?

Yes we do not pay for a static IP it changes all the time and we did get blocked because of some malware.  But I was assured by the mail provider that we were not being blocked but maybe he was mistaken.  Has to be the reason only thing that makes sense.  I will check again thanks.
