back-up mailserver NAT going to loop mail

I see that when mail arrives in the backup mailserver and the primary is still down that it will loop the mail when the mailserver doesn't have a Public IP number
In my case, the backup mailserver has Public IP 193.240.207.200 NATted to x.x.x.200 internally
mail arrives
server tries to deliver to primary 80.242.238.152 but it fails of course
then it sends to public IP nr 193.240.207.200 (it's own public IP on the firewall)
this repeats

I have change IP to public and then it recognizes that it's a local IP

So Is it possible to add an IP nr manually to the server so It skips because it's locally in case of using NAT
