I am still missing info on your jail.conf. Post the jail.conf file for 
the jails in question. Also what services are running on the host that 
you want to communicate with the smtp jail. You have to change the smtp 
config file to tell it to use the new lo1: ip address and you 
have to do the same thing for what ever host service will communicate 
with the smtp jail. They all have to be using the same lo1: 
ip. Most admin just keep those types of services on the host because its 
just easier.
