Exchange Server for all internal mail, and Hostway.com for all external mail

I would like to have an Exchange server to handle all internal email, but have all outside addresses relayed out to our host provider Hostway.  I would also like for our external email to come into the exchange server and hit the appropriate mailbox.  I mostly want to do this to be able to use the calendar and scheduling features of Outlook and Exchange. I already have copy of Exchange 5.5 and server that could run it, so the cost would not be great to set it all up.  Can Exchange handle a scenerio like this and if so would it be too much of an administrative nightmare than it is worth?

Thanks!

Yes it can, and no it wouldn't (answering your questions in order).

Have all your external mail delivered to the Exchange server.  

Configure the Exchange server to relay all your outbound mail through Hostway (after letting them know you want to relay through them).

OK.  So I assume when you say have external mail delivered to the Exchange server a static ip address would be required and a DNS change to point to the Exchange server vs. the mail server at Hostway?

Thanks

Yep, that's exactly what I mean.  

Alternatively, you can ask Hostway if they could forward all mail for your mailboxes to your Exchange server.  They may be willing/able to do this.

Visioneer,

Do I just go into the Internet Mail Service (Exch5.5) and click on the connections tab and switch from use DNS to Forward all messages to host mail.*.*?  I have a similar question as durrence71, but my main reasoning it to stop my corporate email from being blocked by AOL.  right now my mail shows it coming from a dynamic address (static, but my company doesn't truly own it), so I need to realy it through our ISP's mail service.
