Don't flame me for this perhaps over simplification.  NAT, Network Address 
Translation, is a technique whereby a single IP is distributed for use of 
multiple nodes on a network.   Commonly used on networks for putting nodes 
behind a firewall (IP Masquerading).

I don't know why they should have problems receiving email, I use NAT 
and don't have any problems.   Perhaps their addresses need a node name as 
part of the address.  In other words,  "someone at node.domain.com".
