It needs to be a different subnet. your mask of means everything 10.x.x.x is on the same network.
Setup your DMZ as something like 172.16.1.x or 192.168.1.x utilizing a mask
As far as the config of Zywall, I can't help. Wish you luck with it.

Thanks TannerMan !

I have only one public IP.

If I put the webserver and the exchange front-end serveur in the DMZ, how many public IP I need ?

I am not a Zywall guru, but you need only ONE external IP address. Then, inside of Zywall you would do port mapping like.........

port 80/443 goes to (web server)
ports 25/110 goes to 172.16.3 (exchange server)

and so on.....
