      Please do NOT bump your posts. If you really need a reply in 2 hours, phone Microsoft Product Support (all major credit cards accepted) and they will help you. If you don't want to do that, kindly have some patience and allow people who give up free time (early on a Sunday morning for me ) to help you when they can.

      Exchange 2007 IS a mail server so I am not clear how you want to "host my own mail server" through it. More information needed. Note the current version is Exchange 2010 and you should really be using that.

      I am going to guess that you want to use Exchange to send/receive external mail and already have an AD domain, and have a suitable server to install Exchange on (you will need to spec it for the number of users you have) If so:
      Get an internet connection (with a static IP)
      Get a public domain "domain.com"
      Set public MX records to point to your public IP and set your router to forward port 25 to the private IP of the Exchange server
      Install Exchange with the CAS, HT and MBX roles
      Configure an accepted domain for "domain.com"
      Configure an address policy so users get domain.com addresses
      Configure send and receive connectors to allow mail to flow.

      If you are not comfortable with the above process, either ask your Network Admin for help or get a good consultant to set it all up for you.

          I think the best thing is for you to get a consultant to examine your particular circumstances as any advice here will be very general, and may not all be suitable.

          As a minimum you will need your Exchange server to have the CAS, HT and MB roles installed and set up address policies to deliver email for mypublicdomain.com and connectors to send/receive internet email.

          You could also try following online tutorials e.g. http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/...007-part1.html to talk you through the process

            Setting up Exchange, in any configuration, is well beyond the scope of posts on a forum. Entire books have been written about setting up just one of the roles within Exchange, much less the entire beast.

            If you must do it yourself, you're in for an exciting but exhausting journey. I would recommend getting some Video training (Train Signal or CBT Nuggets are good) and some good books.

            To be more specific, however, you may want to look into Microsoft Small Business Server. I'm not sure if you already have a domain set up or not - or even if you specifically need one. Setting up Exchange in SBS is considerably easier than building an Exchange server from scratch.

            Keep in mind that Exchange needs to exist in an Active directory domain. Also it is not recommended to put Exchange on a domain controller. Furthermore, it's strongly advised to have two domain controllers. So now you're talking about three servers at a minimum just to cover your hindquarters. Then add a fourth server if you want to have a Edge Transport server handle anti-spam.

            If all you need is email, then consider one of the myriad other options that exist. You may be better of with hmail or Kerio connect.

              If we are talking about alternatives, I am quite partial to SmarterMail. I have two of those out on site and it is very nice, a real competitor to Exchange that is sneaking up. ActiveSync support, EWS support due.

              For a decent Exchange deployment though, get a consultant. Exchange 2007 and higher is now a complex specialised task, and the mistakes people make at the start can cause problems for some time after. I know, because I get called in to clean it up.
