Setting up SBS2011 with IAMW but with different email addresses

I am installing and configuring Small Business Server 2011 tomorrow.  Last time I did an install, it was SBS2003.  I have read as much as I can on what to expect but one thing worries me and I am hoping that someone can share their knowledge with me.

During the SBS2011, IAMW seems to require everyone to nominate a domain name to use to setup the company's public website and email addresses, etc.,  For various reasons, I want to leave the web hosting and email accounts on web hosting company's server (not self host).  

I want to setup SBS2011 to use 'POP3 Connector' to collect emails ( from hosting company's email server and of course send emails with the same email addresses.

This might be easy if users did not need to access their emails on the road.  I probably could have ignored IAMW setup.  Unfortunately, users are use to "Outlook Web Access" (OWA) on SBS2003 so OWA or Remote Web Workplace (RWW) needs to be setup.  For that, I already have another domain name registered (ie.

So, if all goes well, I am hoping to achieve the following:

Users send and receive emails using
Users can access RWW using address
Do not want public website hosted on (this domain is 100% used by staff only)
Here is my game plan.  I will install SBS2011 Standard as a clean install (not migrate from 2003).  When I get to IAMW, I am planning to use address to setup.  That should take care of RWW but all the user email addresses will be using the wrong domain.

I am hoping their is a way to change the Exchange in SBS2011 to use, can anyone please tell me how?

Can anyone see any issues I might bump into by setting it up this way?

It has been a little while since I setup SBS2003... my memory have failed me.  If POP3 Connector collects email messages, where can I set the Outgoing Email Server details so all the outgoing messages can be forwarded to the ISP email server?

Any assistance or heads-up will be very much appreciated.
