    You could create a subdomain, then configure your http server to foward that to any URL you like with either a virtual directory or just an http file.

    becomes: (with a virtual server pointing to the subfolder)

    That's the default setting and should already work like that.  You could even use your static outside ip address like:
    and it should take you to your Exchange website.
    Does this not currently work?

    I was under the assumption you wanted to get rid of typing in the "/exchange" at the end of the domain name and thus resolve it to its own domain name.

    You are correct in your assumtion. I was refering in the properties for the default web site in IIS. Replacing inetpub/wwwroot with the for the home directory.

    Im trying to get to replace

    It didnt work like that though.

    If you have the ability to create a subdomain (depends on who controls your DNS), then create one such as:
    then the virtual directory can be pointed to this subdomain.
