How do I configure exchange 2007 to pull mail from my internet account

I have a lab type setup of a DC and Exchange 2007. I have exchange 2007 SP1 installed as mailbox role with HUB transport & client access role.

I want to be able to use this to send and recieve mail. Can I do this. Also, not sure if send connectors have to be configured and other items. I just have the basic install done.

Where is the email being delivered to? Natively Exchange 2007 can only receive email by SMTP. It cannot collect email from your ISPs Server. If you want email to be pulled down from another server then you will need to look at a third party POP3 connector, or ask the ISP if they provide an SMTP feed for their mailboxes (if it is a residential type ISP then they almost certainly will not).
