SBS 2008/2011 Set up your internet address

I am setting up an SBS 2011 standard server to use exchange 2010 to bring email down from an existing hosted domain like  xxxx.edu   into mailboxes on the exchange server.  I don't want a new domain name, I don't want to manage a domain name, I just want my exchange server to go out to the domain xxxx.edu and have the mailboxes I set up on the exchange server pull down the mail.

I'm afraid this wizard is going to screw something up.  Do I continue with the wizard and act like xxxx.edu is the domain I want to manage?

Yes, basically the wizard just prepares the server to receive mail for that domain. Until you specify your server's IP in DNS as MX for your domain, mail will flow the old way.

Just be sure to check that you will manage your domain by yourself...

So does that MX record part come later, is it a part I skip if I don't want to try and associate my server with the MX record of the domain? I'm afraid to start the wizard and have it screw something up.

Yes, it is a separate process done usualy in cooperation with your domain provider...
Just don't tell the server to manage the domain for you and continue the wizard. It might complain that the domain is not configured properly at your ISP but you can ignore that.
