Seems to me like i could be asking a really dumb question... but i will ask anyways.
Does DMZ have to be enabled on the router for exchange mail server to work?  I would have thought that by simply forwarding ports 25 and 110 that email would come through.  This does not seem to be the case... I cannot get any messages through.  When I enable DMZ all messages come through... do I have a problem here?
