smtp server using global IP

Problem:

New incoming-only smtp gateway was installed by simply changing static
mapping to go to the smtp gateway and everything works fine except the mail
server is now using the Global outside address so it's failing reverse
lookup for outgoing mail (some spam filters are complaining). Configuration
is complicated by webserver on DMZ which needs to smtp to mail server on
inside, too. Do I assign an extra static such as 111.122.116.6 for outbound
and change mail.abc.com at ISP's DNS? When I added this address it broke
the outgoing mail, I guess because of conflict with static mapping for
webserver.
Thanks for your help.



111.122.116.4 mail.abc.com, MX (inside smtp gateway is 10.1.1.25)

111.122.116.5 www.abc.com (dmz webserver 192.168.25.11 10.1.1.103
server via 192.168.54.253)

10.1.1.103 exchange server (currently appears as global outside IP which
fails reverse lookup. I have 111.122.116.6 address availble I could assign)


config

access-list inside_in permit tcp host 10.1.1.103 any eq smtp
access-list outside_in permit tcp any host 111.122.116.5 eq smtp
access-list dmz_access_in permit udp any any eq domain

If your webserver is sendmail and the SMTP gateway is sendmail you can setup
a mailertable on the webserver so it can talk to the SMTP gateway using the
local IP address rather than trying to go out and come back in on the same
interface (which PIX can't do anyway).
