1. Send connector, how the SMTP will be send out from the organization; via DNS Mx Lookup or via a Smart Host (SMTP gateway).

2. Is that require to enable OWA Outlook Web Access so that users can access email via Web interface.

Actually there is more then 2 that need to be configure but is highly depend on your organization.

Is that use for testing or production.

For your email, is your exchange server will send the email to internet directly or it will forward to other server before send out?

Example, you need to let the Mail Server know the email will follow which road to send out...

via Road 1 where is use highway directly (direct to internet) or
via small road and turn into highway (where email will send to another server and send out to internet).

Hi,
You question is pretty huge and vague..
Here are things to do:
This is what you need to follow to setup your Exchange Server.
  • I would also recommend since you are new to it that you follow Webcast: 24 Hours of Exchange Server 2007 by Harold Wong. Search for it on Google, you will get it on top.
  • Also, try out Virtual Labs for Exchange 2007 (free):: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bb499043.aspx
