Getting Exchange going..

Ok, I have recently set up a SBS 2003 server and am running a smaller intranet off it.  Now I would like to get Exchange usable with it.  I know that it comes pre-configured on SBS 2003 and as I add users and everything they are assigned an e-mail address and such.  My e-mail address would be Jesse@myserver.local (for example).  I have simply tried sending and receiving e-mail from that account through Outlook and the Outlook Web Access that is provided on my intranet but it always comes back with "The e-mail address could not be found".  Im not too keen with setting Exchange up yet so any suggestions or suggested website would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks..

Any more help with this issue?..These sites did not really give me any help.  Again my problem is that I can send e-mails to other accounts on the server it works fine but I cant send or recieve e-mail from the outside.  My e-mail addresss is Jesse@myserver.local (for example).  Should I simply be able to send e-mail to that address from another e-mail address outside the server or does it have to have a different ending such as .com or something else?
Yes Sir,
You are right your Domain has to be Publically recognised.
Also, you need to make sure that you have a Smart Host/SMTP Server that has the ability to send out Mails.
Hope this helps

"You are right your Domain has to be Publically recognised."

What is this referring to? That I can use my address with .local ending or it has to be .com ending?

Also, doesnt Exchange already have to capabilities to be a Smart Host/SMTP Server?
