You can set the email domain name inside of Exchange.  this page explains it.

basically, you need to install Exchange, then set the Accepted Domain Name in Exchange.
Then connect exchange to the internet and adjust permissions on your Receive Connector (so that it allows mail).  If you want email to come directly to the Exchange server then you should have a fixed/static IP address (you can use a dynamic IP along with a service such as or, but a fixed/static IP address is best).
Then setup DNS MX record and DNS A (host) record for your Exchange Server public IP address

There are more steps to make it work better, but those are the basic/minimum steps.
