We are currently trying to update the office network here.  I am setting up a Win2k3 Domain with a seprate Exchange server which will join the Domain.  Now my questions...

Should I just wait to add users once I attached my exchange server to the network?

Also, since my website is being hosted by a third party and that third party controls my MX Records do I just tell them to change the IP to the public IP of my exchange server and just setup Internet Mail?

Does the Exchange Server require 2 NIC cards? One for internal IP and one for external?
Or can I simply just NAT a public to the private IP?

Thank you!

OK, Let's answer these sequentially

1)  You can add users now and add their exchange info after the server is installed.  Depends on if you want to get the users added now.

2) Tell them to reroute your MX records only to the public IP address of the Exchange Server (assure that you provide NAT on your firewall), after you have the Exchange Server up and running.  

3) Yes, you can certainly use 1 nic and NAT efficiently,depending on what your needs are.  You do not need 2 NIC's.
