I'm a little confused about setting up the Email policy.  TechNet states that Forefront Protection for Exchange and Exchange Hub tranport role are required for this to work - but why am I allowed to configure it if I don't have either of those installed on my TMG server?  The response to this question may make the next 2 questions moot:

During the configuration, the authoritative domain example lists the 2 examples ", *" - we only have one domain, so would the proper response be simply ?

Last, I'm uncertain as to the meaning of "Specify the public domain name or IP address the e-mail listener provides in response to SMTP session initiation messages (HELO,EHLO)"  this *sounds* like it should be the external DNS name of my Exchange server, i.e. - *not* mail.contoso.local
