Exchange 2007 on SBS 2008

I have SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 and my emails accounts are from Yahoo Small Business.
The users have in their Outlooks their Yahoo POP account, like steveadams@company.com, and the exchange account form the domain like Steve@company.local, where Steve is the way he authenticates in the network.

I want every email user, just to have an exchange account and have the benefits of it. We already have a domain name.

How do I set up exchange in order to have just one email account for user?

I think you can better make the exchange server the main mail server. So you can point the mx records of your domain to the exchange server. Open port 25 on your firewall. Configure exchange server to accept mail, add an accepted domain, and make an email address policy.

If your exchange server is responsible for all mail traffic, you can simply add an email adres within the email adres tab of the mailbox properties of a specific user.

on your SBS 2008 server...run the Setup your internet address wizard
Then create an A record with whomever supports your external DNS for "remote" and point to your public IP

Then create a new MX record with 0 priority and point it to the remote A record.

Then get rid of the OLD mx record

Then get rid of those pop3 accounts in outlook
