Setting up an exchange server without a domain

I would like to set up an exchange server at my office and my network consists of a DSL line, a Dlink router/firewall in a workgroup setting.  I would like to know if I can set up the exchange server without using a domain?

No, you can not setup Exchange without a domain, you must have a valid domain up and operational for the use of Exchange....what are you trying to do, maybe there are other options for you!

We have a company that is hosting our web site and handles our mail as well.  We also have a third party application (database) that we use for our clients.  We would like to use the third parties application to send out bulk emails to various clients depending on the need.  The third party application is hard coded to use port 25 to send out the emails and our hosting company uses different ports and does not allow for 25.  I was informed by our hosting company that if we had an exchange server set up then we could use the third party application through the exchange server and then they would be able to redirect the mail through the appropriate port.  I also read something similar to this with 'No-ip.com"

you could technically use any type of email server to do this, Exchange is just one flavor of email server.  There are other types of email servers out there.
