    Omg.....

    Ok firstly, get a static IP address from your ISP. usless you want to have spend hours propping up your mail server.

    Secondly to get you into action you need to make sure your MX records (part of your DNS record) is pointing to the new IP. You said you've done that so you now need to wait a period of 72 hours for those changes to take effect

    If you don't get a static IP address, you'll need to do this everytime your router crashes and changes the IP assigned to it by your ISP.

    Is port 25 open or fowarded to the correct IP?
