The 172.16.x.x range is a private IP range. I can bet what your SIMS
server is seeing is the public IP of your firewall. That is the IP
address you need to put into the client list.

Probably the easiest way to figure out what that IP is, is to go to That site will tell you what the public IP address
appears to be.

Your other option is to use an email client that supports SMTP
Authentication and then just turn on that feature in your client. It is
already on in SIMS (although, if you do not turn on the Advertise Auth in
SIMS some email clients will not attempt it)
