Your public domain name should be listed in recipient policy.

ESM, Recipients, Recipient Policies. Right click on the default policy and choose Properties. Add the domain in the same format as the existing domain. Once it is in place, select it and choose Set as Default.
DO NOT remove the existing email address policy that is domain.local - that is used by Exchange internally. If it isn't set as default, then it will not go out on new email messages - although check the accounts are correct as well.

For DNS, and MX record cannot be an IP address.
Therefore you will have to create a new host, of type A, that points to your static IP address.
The usual name is mail - therefore making mail.domain.com
Then in the MX record you would enter the full host name - mail.domain.com

You should also speak to your ISP and ask them to set a reverse DNS record on your static IP address that matches the host you have just created. The reverse DNS is set by the ISP - if they tell you to speak to your domain name registrar, ask to speak to someone with a clue.

Finally, you should the SMTP banner correctly. This is used by many email providers to confirm whether you are likely to be a spammer or not.
See my web site at http://www.amset.info/exchange/dnsconfig.asp for details on setting the SMTP banner.

That all depends on how your domain name registrar is configured.
I can only give you the generic information - you need to put those in to your domain name registrar or ask them how to do it.
