Please help, I’m new in exchange.  I just setup my ad and exchange, both connecting to my DSL router.  I have a domain from godaddy.com.  Please show me step by step what I need to do for godaddy, router and my exchange to setup email to outside. Thank you in advance.

You need a public ip address, than open incoming ports smtp pop3 http https to the exchange server.
Now you have to change (your ISP will do for you) DNS mx record to your pubblic ip addres, after syncronization of DNS you'll start to receive external mail.

You'll also have to work with your ISP to setup a reverse DNS for your public IP address. If you don't the larger mail hosting providers will reject your outgoing message to them. I'm talking abot AOL, Yahoo, GMail, etc.
