I have successfully installed exchange 2007 on to our sbs 2008 platform, and everything is running as it should internally. Whereas our exchange 2003 used to use a smarthost (and we would collect mail via pop connector), I want to bypass this additional step and send and receive email directly from the interent. Can someone please point me in the direction (or provide answers here) of step by step instructions on what settings need to be configured to allow exchange 2007 to send and receive email directly from the net. We have a fixed IP address, DSL connection held by a Cisco 2800 router, and a Smoothwall Firewall/gateway between our sbs2008 box and the Internet.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
