I have a question regarding the properties of the Default SMTP Virtual Server. For FQDN- I believe it auto enters the internal FQDN of the Exchange Server. Should this be changed to the External DNS name of the server (ie. internal = server1.local.com / external = mail.mybusiness.com)?  What about the masquerade domain?

In that location, the FQDN is what is used in the SMTP banner.

If you telnet to your own machine on port 255 you will get something like this:

220 IGT-IMC-01.redmond.corp.microsoft.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service <Inbound
SMTP Virtual Server> Tue, 20 Jun 2006 14:20:00 -0700

The "IGT-IMC-01.redmond.corp.microsoft.com" is what would be entered in the FQDN box.
It should match what the server is known as on the Internet - so matching the MX record and preferably the reverse DNS. That information is used by many remote ISPs as part of the anti-spam measures.

The masquerade domain can be ignored in most cases. It is used to redirect NDR messages to another domain. Most people don't have a use for that setting.
