You need DNS server plus you need to register the Exchange server namespace in public DNS server.

Its always better to use 3rd Party ISP as DNS are always upto date at ISP end.

vidhar's article should help you setting up exchange.

Next you need you DNS vendor to set up an MX record for your domain, pointing to the public ip address of your email server (Iassume the vendor also manages the domain for you).
It might also be wise to set up a PTR record for reverse lookup. A lot of mailservers do a reverse lookup before they allow the mail in. This record however, has to be set up by your ISP and not by the ones managing your domain.........
And finally you need to allow smtp traffic through your firewall/router from the public address you set up in your MX record to the private address af you exchange server (if you haven't done so allready).
