simple problem (hope for simple solution...):
outbound mail show the company's main IP in the header
since some spam filters block mail if they can't resolve the source IP,
I must find a way to attach the correct mail.domain.com IP to the emails headers

Absolutely. ISA would not affect this IP address unless you had NATted the IP address assigned to the MX record to the external IP address of the ISA server. Your change is the correct one.
