    Re: exachange and Domain name problem

    There is no relation between the AD domain name and the domains that Exchange hosts mail for - this is why you can (and are strongly recommended to) use a TLD for your AD which is not valid on the internet. You can have Exchange host mail for a domain with the same name as your AD, or for a completely different domain.

    Point the MX records of the domain to your public IP address, and then make the required configuration change in Exchange.
