2 Email Accounts - Internal and External - Can only send through default send and recieve group.

Example - If Exchange account is set as default send and recieve, I can only send things to rj@mydomain.local.

               If Website mail server is set as default send and recieve, I can only send mail to rj@mywebsite.com.

Can anyone shed some light on whay it's one or the other and not both?

Do I have to use my server as the SMTP server for my website account?

I would definately consolidate your external mail into your exchange. that's all exchange is there for.

I mean point the MX to your exchange's external IP address, let @mywebsite.com email flow to your exchange.

I have all the mailboxes consolidated per your previous post. That seemed to take care of how many mailboxes they were all seeing.

So it's not possible to have to have 2 Accounts one internal and one external sending and recieving to 1 mailbox? My only 2 options are getting a POP collector or Setting up my own SMTP Server?

It is possible to keep 2 accounts but you got to educate the end users how to switch account when they send emails. I would go for SMTP server, once you have it running, it can save you lot of headache.
