Losing My IP

We've been rapidly virtualizing many severs, all Windows based. Finally 
decided its time to virtualize a Linux server so we chose our email 
gateways. Not a lot of load or disk activity. Ran the VMWare p2v client 
and we were good to go or at least I thought so. With all the image spam 
we've been hit with I installed Sanesecurity, which has greatly helped 
reduce it, but is getting a few false positives. As best I can tell any 
rules that reference IP address, say don't get applied because 
it appears that MailScanner is seeing all email as coming from

Any ideas what I need to fix to get back my IP.
