    Sigh... moved to perfectly good Exchange forum just a few mouse clicks below the Coffee Lounge

    Yes, you should have a static IP address -- it will be supplied by your ISP so get on the phone and ask them for one.
    If they will absolutely not give one (money may be involved), then there are ways -- not preferred-- of getting around it

        A lot depends on your router/firewall
        Typically you use NAT from the router to the internal network so you would set up a firewall rule on the router to forward port 25 to the Exchange Server

        You will (separately) need to point MX records for your domain to the public IP supplied by your ISP

            The ISP will do it or allow you to do it.

            Can I suggest you consider getting a consultant to help you

                Find the web site which allows you to manage your external domain
                Log on
                Find DNS section of control panel
                Check you have a name pointing to your public IP address, if not, create one
                Point your lowest value MX record to the name*

                *some control panels allow you to put an IP in directly for an MX record

                Note each control panel is different, so we do not have exact instructions
