Can't receive mail sent to ip address

By cj_mcnix ·
While trying to remove my server from a blacklist site, I get the error message listed below. works fine, but postmaster@ipaddress does not. How do I "fix" my Exchange 2000/ Win2000 server? :

This does NOT mean that it is closed to relaying; just that it is

67.128.xx.xx does not like recipient.

Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for

Message Report:

Giving up on 67.128.xx.xx.

on your SMTP virtual server access properties, relay, what box do you have checked??? if Allow only the list below is check and in that list your IP address for your DC is listed, then you should be ok.

I have under ACCEPT relaying:
Only the list below:

Allow any computer that authenticated to relay is UNCHECKED.

The 67.28.xx.xx is the router interface. The server IP is actually in the 192.168.xx.xx range.
