Did you *just* change the IP numbers & not the name? Is it possible that
your email client reads the domain name from a file, and that file no
longer contains the fully-qualified domain name?
What email client are you using? Could you experiment by sending an email
from the command line, like so:
mail -s "test email" email@example.com
Type a short messages, and then end with a period on a new line.
And how does that look when it's received?
