Exchange 2007 not receiving email

I have an SBS 2008 server which runs Exchange 2007 SP3 UPdate Rollup 11.
Today I changed the subnet from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.202.x
I had to manually change 1 DNS entry and aslo the IP address for the exchange send and receive connectors.

I cannot receive email. Sending works fine but the receive fails.
I have event ID's 1017 and 1019.
The Fix my Network Wizard says "Exchange SMTP Connector is Invalid"
If I telnet to my mailserver on port 25, I get this: 421 4.3.2 Service not available, closing transmission channel
How do I find and correct this error?

You need to look at the remote IP subnets on the Receive Connectors. SBS does things a little differently - it creates a third connector for accepting email from the internet - that is probably the one you need to check. If you modified the Default then that doesn't have anonymous enabled by default, so will not work correctly.

Did you let the fix my network wizard do its thing?
You should really have changed the IP address using SBS, rather than manually. I would suggest that you run the connect to the internet wizard again, enter the new IP address and let SBS do its thing. There are a lot of settings "under the hood" that SBS will apply.

Yes, I followed the instuctions found in this link. 

It worked on everything properly except 1 DNS entry and the receive connector. After that , I restarted the router, the server and each Workstation. The Fix my network wizard still tells me that the connector is invalid.

I have the results for get-receiveconnector|fl if you want me to post them, just ask.
