You need to forward port 80 (HTTP) to your Exchange server.  Select 'Port Forwarding' as the service type, and choose HTTP from the drop-down list.  Then type in your server's private IP address in the 4 boxes to the right, and click the Add button.

The server will take care of that part (assuming it has Exchange installed on it).  If you look in your server's Internet Services Manager, you should see a Virtual Directory called Exchange.  That is your Outlook Web Access installation.

So, from outside your network, you type in , the router forwards the request to your Exchange server (because that's where you told it to send port 80 traffic).  The server examines the request, the /Exchange part on the end tells it that you want OWA, so that's what it sends back out.
