Domain Record modification for Exchange

Our Email server (QMail) resides off site for obvious reasons and it's running on Linux. The web server is running also on the same server and our domains points to the same machine.

I have an Exchange Mail server on our LAN and I know that I can set up the MX Record of our domains to point to the Exchange Server (incoming mails) and then can use smart host (Outgoing mail).

When user want to try the web outlook remotely from their browsers how do I set it up so they can type something like ... mail.domain.com and be able to access the exchange server (web Exchange outlook) as oppose to the qmail server.

domain.com will point to the off site server because our web site will be running there.

1 Solution
add a new DNS A record pointing something like
webmail.mycompany.com to your external static ip address.

then configure your firewall to redirect port 80 & 443 to the exchange server.
