You need a connector like PopCon.

Please check the link to understand how it works. I have setup many using such connectors and enabled users to access mails over a normal DSL connection.

PS: Added another Link.

I don't understand the question. Any Domino server of a decent and recent release can send and receive mail. No connectors required. All help is in the Admin Help database.

You could start here: http://www.ipi.org/help/help8_admin.nsf/ and click Mail at the left. The same database should be on your PC when you have the Admin client installed.

Type "load smtp" at the domino console (black screen). Report back here what it says.
Send an email to "administrator@<YourDomain>.com". Does it get through.
Send an email from your administrator account using the tracking/tracing route options and report back here the results.

This should give us a few starting clues as to what is going wrong if it's not working.

Of course. The first few steps would be to know if you have a static IP and a domain name with the mx records pointing to that IP.

Also, does internal mail route alright? Send an email using Lotus Notes to the person sitting next to you.

Either follow Sjef's advise and check the admin manual or post what errors you're getting.

Are there mails in the server's mail.box?
What messages do you see when you open the server's log.nsf database, in the Misc and the Mail Routing sections?

To summarise some of the manual and what is needed on server.
Make sure you have a static IP to the Internet.
Make sure server can communicate out and receive on port 25
Setup a global domain document for your mail domain
Setup a server configuration document to accept mail to your domain and optionaly block spammers and prevent relaying.
Load smtp and make sure it is on port 25
Change domain MX record to point to your servers static IP.

Look for any errors otherwise enjoy mail, some may not be spam...
