no it will not work and it is not supported

I agree with busbar, no it won't work at all. If you try you will break your Exchange box completely.

Plus if you're thinking of implementing a simple Lync environment you will need a separate server for internal deployment or 3 for internal and external access. See the following list:

1. Lync Front End (internal only)
2. Lync Edge (required for external)
3. Reverse Proxy (required for external)

Hope that helps.
