switching from internal to internet connected exchange 2003

We currently have Exchange Server SBE 2003 running internally using pop-2-exchange to pick up mail from the rogers-hosted domain email server (mail@ourdomain.com)
 We want to add blackberry access, which means, as far as I can tell, that we need to put our exchange server on the internet directly. What is involved in this changeover?
We also have several domains hosted on Rackspace that I have control over.

We have 5 IP addresses assigned to us and by adding another router I COULD give the exchange server it's own public IP (like 24.2XX.XXX.21 instead of the 24.2XX.XXX.17 of our gateway, or 24.2XX.XXX.18 of our current external IP address.

What is the best way to approach this???

You can run POP connector with BES. The BES reads the mailboxes and doesn't care how they get there.

Be sure to follow the BES install steps to the T. There are some very tricky permissions that must be set or your users will not be able to send email from their BBs.

Here is RIM's new site for install instructions:
