    MX records points to an IP address that is not a public IP

    My intern ip addresses are private. 192.168.x.x,
    and MX records from my server points to intern IP address that are not public IP.
    for ex:
    "Received: from pias [] for mail-local (HELO pias)
    via SMTP; Mon, 23 Jan 2006 16:26:51 +0200"

    How to change my MX records ?

    Are you receiving and sending mail ok? My mailserver sits behind my firewall, the firewall has the public IP address assigned to it, and my mailserver uses a private IP. When I send emails, the sent address looks like this:

    Received: from [] ( [])
    and I've never had any problems with it.
