Your description is a little vague...
I am GUESSING that you are using the server as a gateway as well? and it has a public and private address?
If that's the case, your problem is in your routing or NAT config - not with courier - you can handle it a variety of ways all not really courier topics, but including creating a hosts file, or using internal DNS or using a different NAT setup to capture the traffic properly.

I already sent this to FS...@aol.com. I thought this should be sent to the list to make it searchable in the archives/on google.com.

server. When I connect through the network I can connect just find, and log in as a user so Mysql is setup correctly and everything, but when i try and use my actual IP address, 22.214.171.124, I can't connect, and it just times out.
Do you have iptables on the linux box, or any other firewall? I have seen such behavior from a misconfigured firewall. A reason you might not see it locally is because most stock configurations allow an exception for loopback, and many allow for local network connections.
One thing you ought to try is to telnet directly to the port. So, for port 143 (IMAP), you would go to a command prompt and type: telnet 126.96.36.199 143
You should see something like:
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 UIDPLUS CHILDREN NAMESPACE THREAD=ORDEREDSUBJECT THREAD=REFERENCES SORT QUOTA IDLE STARTTLS] Courier-IMAP ready. Copyright 1998-2003 Double Precision, Inc. See COPYING for distribution information.
If you do not, then it means there's some sort of network problem between you and it, probably a firewall or NAT somewhere.
I hope that helps, David Gomillion
