Hello.

You first need to configure your router to redirect connections from the port 25 (SMTP) from the internet to your server. Afther that you need to talk with your ISP to publish a DNS register in Iternet like mail.mydomain.com. Yo will need to purchase a domain and then create the register.

I don't recommend you to directly connect your Mail server to Internet because of security risks. It's recommended that you install an ISA server or some type of Firewall between. Here you can find a good tutorial http://www.isaserver.org/tutorials/Publishing_A_Mail_Server_With_ISA_Server.html

Hope this helps.

Hello,

I think you need to access the exchange server remotely... so you can try configuring the exchange server as described step by step in the following URL:

Hope this helps. Thanks!
