In this article we calculate several divergent amplitudes in $\phi^4$-theory on non-commutative space-time ( $\Theta_{0i} \neq 0$) in the framework of interaction-point time-ordered perturbation theory (IPTOPT), continuing work done in hep-th/0209253. On the ground of these results we find corresponding Feynman rules that allow for a much easier diagrammatic calculation of amplitudes. The most important feature of the present theory is the absence of the UV/IR mixing problem in all amplitudes calculated so far. Although we are not yet able to give a rigorous proof, we provide a strong argument for this result to hold in general. Together with the Feynman rules we found, this opens promising vistas onto the systematic renormalization of non-commutative field theories.
