The DNS database contains an MX(Mail Exchange) entry that forwards all
email for your domain web.picosecond.com to 126.96.36.199. Your internal
network (192.168.1.x) is shielded from the Internet by the firewall, all
mail messages are forwarded to the firewall and the firewall intern
forward it to the internal mail server (192.168.1.55). If you are
setting up a new mail server with an different IP address as the
original mail server you should have a problem. The rule on the firewall
only allows for mail to be forwarded to 192.168.1.55, edit the rule on
the firewall to reflect the ip address of the new mail server.
Only if you place the 2 mail-servers directly on the Internet (in front
of the firewall) would you need 2 extra addresses.
