Hub Transport Exchange 2007

I have installed Exchange 2007, i am on the phase of finalizing the installment but i get stuck on Hub Transport, because i am not sure what to do i have read an article on the web but it was not clear, anyway my domain name is ec3global.local, which i can see in hub transport as an accepted domain and the type is authoritative, now i have two different companies under one forest and they are going to receive emails from the following domains,
1.Ec3global.com
2.Qtic.com
Now when i click on new accepted domain under hub transport it asks me for three options,
1.Authoritative Domain.
2.Internal Relay Domain.
3.External Relay Domain.
So i am not sure which one to choose for, my ISP is handling the MX records.
The second question is do i have to install Mail server because under properties of user profile (i.e AD) i cant see email profiles tab.

It isn't a relay domain because you are having the email delivered to mailboxes on the server. The other two options are for when your server is relaying the email to/from another server.

Mailbox management is no longer carried out in ADUC, you do all mailbox management in Exchange Management Console.

Have you actually read the help files and been through the checklist that comes up when the Management Console is started for the first time? That guides you through what you need to do.

You should also take a look at the Microsoft deployment guide for a simple installation - it is pretty comprehensive and makes a good grounding for E2007.

Am I talking to myself here?

When you start Exchange Management Console for the first time, a checklist is presented. If you go through that checklist it helps you configure the Exchange server.
