One of our costumers requires to send emails but the security in the link is high so is not possible to resolve DNS address. Instead of using smtp.webfaction.com we need to give them an IP for the smtp server. Today 74.55.86.74 is the IP for smtp.webfaction.com.

The question is: is this IP address fixed?

If not, how often is it changed?

Thanks in advance.

The IP is fixed in the sense that we don't rotate IPs at this time. But if the server is migrated at some point then a new IP will be assigned, so we don't guarantee that it will never change. In general, using the IP directly should be fine.
