Yes you need to create a record to access web mail outside from your network. Just call up your domain DNS administrator and ask him/her to setup this record for you.

Well, the users need to be able to access the server, so an A Record is necessary. But the question is whether you are trying to access it from inside or outside your network. If inside, an A Record already exists. If outside, you would need to create an A Record on your external DNS that matches what is configured in Exchange for the Client Access server.

Unless you want them to have to use the IP address every time, or use HOSTS file entries on the client computers, then yes.  Of course, if you are already receiving mail to the server via the internet, then you probably already have an A record that would work.

If you don't know where to find it, it's almost certain that your ISP is maintaining your Public DNS for you.  Try typing your domain name into one of the online nslookup things.  Here's the first one I found:
