You will need to do a couple of things first.

1.) Contact your Internet Provider and change your IP Address from DHCP to STATIC.  This is usually not an expensive option...$5-$10 per month maybe.

2.) Then you will need to register your domain name (GoDaddy.com is a good site for this).

3.) In Exchange, create your Orgnaization.  Create your e-mail addresses to be yourdomainname.com

==============

Example:
   Contact ISP, and they will give you an IP Address....le's say they give you 123.123.123.123

You would then sign up with GoDaddy or Network Solutions and register your domain name (for example - JoesDomain.com)

You will need a mail record (MX) -  mail.joesdomain.com which points to 123.123.123.123.
That will point outside mail servers to your mail server.

jlanderson1 has the best answer, but the below solution would work if you don't want or can't get a static IP address from your ISP.

You could use an external mail host for email retrieval.  For instance, some domain registrars will host a certain number of email accounts with your domain purchase for free.  You can then use the POP3 connector in SBS 2008 to retrieve the email from the external mail servers and deliver it to the exchange mailbox you specify.  In this scenario, you should also setup an SMTP smart host for outbound emails.  The only real advantage of taking this route is you don't have to forward any ports through your firewall to the SBS server.  Also you don't need a static IP address.

If you want more info on how to configure this, let me know.

You can do it without a static IP, it just isn't idea.

You can use a service like dyndns, or no-ip and use their client to keep your IP Address linked to the domain. I have multiple clients that have this setup, and it works well.
