SMTP Unavailable or Refusing Connection after IP Change On Server

    Just got a new data line turned up yesterday to replace some very slow VSAT connections I had.

    ON the server I changed the IP address in all locations such as:
    hosts, resolv.conf, interfaces, shorewall/interfaces
    Then I changed my DNS at the registrar to point o the new IP.

    Then I logged onto ISPConfig and changed the IP in 'Management > Settings > Server'
    I also added a client only IP to the IP List.

    After that I went into each clients account and adjusted their IP's accordingly.

    The issue:
    While my domain resolves and I can check email- I receive the following when attempting to send an email:
    The server might be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections
    What am I missing here?
    Prior to the new IP assignment all was good.

    Thanking you in advance for your help.

    AHHHHH, I see this is normal activity during the propagation period after changing the IP on a server??.

    It's all working now.

    Thank you everyone.
