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.

but what about the /exchange...  if you type in the ip and forward to port 80.. it will default to that site since its the only site on there but how to I get to go to the exchange part...  like    122.122.122.122/exchange

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 http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/exchange , 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.
