There isn't much to it. SBS should already be setup to do it.
You will need a static IP address - then a host name pointing to that static address. SBS likes to use remote.example.com, so I would use that if possible.
Once you have the A record in your public DNS configured, simply change the MX records for your domain from the existing provider to remote.example.com. Email will start to flow in a few minutes later.

If you want to test it before making the change - configure the A record if you don't already have it, then use a test site to confirm you can send email to remote.example.com.

Don't forget to open port 25 on your router!

Simon.
