That is the crux of the matter; IF putting the IP address into the db lets
you relay, then popbsmtpd can do its job. If not, it can't do anything.
I am willing to take a look at your main.cf, if you are willing to send it
to me. Maybe I can see something that is causing trouble, and we can get
it relaying properly.
A brief description of your setup would also help; is your server behind a
firewall? Does it have multiple ethernet cards?
