Right, but the connections are all coming (as far as postfix is concerned) from 192.168.1.1, which will certainly be considered local by postfix - so, either you firewall is rewriting the packets when it NATs them, or someone's spamming you from your firewall...
Ok, that might be the problem, is there any reason why the server ignores the ip address it came from in the first place though, like the one below?

I don't understand the question - the server doesn't ignore anything - I'm convinced this is a firewall problem.
What kind of FW is this, anyway?
