Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something here, but won't you now have a
problem with ANY mail server in the outside world, all of which will be
unreachable from within the private network ?
Or is it that the NAT configuration allows access to all public IP addresses
except for those for which it is doing NAT ?
In any event, I'd be bitching at my ISP and looking at my SLA - if the ISP
chooses to rearrange their internal network, this should be done in such a
way that customers are not adversely affected.
