I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


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 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

Hope this helps.
