    SMTP uses port 25 for mail transfer. You should require no additional software as the exchange server will download and send all the mail.

    You will require a MX record to be setup in DNS that will tell all other mail servers where you are. This will typically point to the external address of your router and you port forward to the internal address of your mail server.

      As wullieb1 states you will only need a static IP address and an MX record, a sub record of your DNS records, to get your exchange online. Once you have the record & IP address inb place just run the "Connect to the Internet' wizard from within the Exchange System Manager under tools.

      You will also probably need to set up your user accounts for the FQDN email addresses ([email protected]
