moving email from hosted to internal--quick questions

Last Modified: 2010-04-21

i am going to be moving a comapnys email from hosted at their ISP to their internal Exchange.  i understand that i need to use exmerge to import the pst and updated the A record to point to the IP on the company and open port 25.

what i need to know is:  once these changes are made, will mail start flowing in for the domain?  is there any thing i need to do to exchange or system manager to get mail coming in?  also, once this is done, do i just delete the curretn account in outlook (using pop right now) and recreate it using exchange?

other than what i typed, is it pretty much that simple?
