Hi,
This may sound like a dumb question, but it's the first time i've encountered this. I have a new client who is using tds for their ISP. They have a domain name setup that is autoforwarding any email from that domain name to a tds.net email address. They now want to setup their own Small Business server and host the email from the exchange server portion of SBS. I believe that i need to have the ISP (TDS) setup an MX record change to point to the public (outside) ip address of the sbs server-- is that correct? or does the domain name hosting company have to do that?

You are correct.  Whoever manages their DNS will have to make the change.

To be clear - it is whoever looks after the domain. That may or may not be the ISP. You may also get some resistance from the ISP to make the change, or they will tell you that you cannot do that.

You will need a static IP address as well.

Whoever looks after the domain basically has to do two things

1. Create an A record to point to your static IP address. This could be a record of mail, therefore making mail.domain.com

2. Change the MX records of the domain to use mail.domain.com

I usually suggest a 48 hour gap between the two to allow for replication time.
