Setup acces for iPhone and Android

I have a broad question that I need some help with.  I handle the IT responsibilities for a small company and want to move some users from Blackberry to iPhone and Andriods that they have.  Instead of carrying 2 phones they want to drop the blackberry.
Current setup:
Sonicwall Firewall TZ200W
Barracuda Anti-Spam Firewall
Microsoft Small Business Server 2003

So far I can connect to OWA (Outlook Web Access), and IMAP to get mail, but I cannot send via the IMAP configuration.  I cannot get SMTP to resolve to send email.  In the iPhone I can also get mail via IMAP but not send via SMTP.  

The built in exchange connection that the iPhone supports does not work either.  

I know we do not have a DNS record, so is that part of the problem?  

So I'm trying to setup exchange on the backside, the firewall in the middle and DNS on the net.  I know the firewall is allowing IMAP to get email because I get the messages on the iPhone and I can get the IMAP messages on a laptop running Outlook.
