hi in the passed i configured and setup exchange 2003 and setup the email via a xp & win 7 professional desktop to allow email to be sent internally.so i have some understanding.  i was not able to send email externally due to not being able to afford this.  this was carried out as a training exercise to know what practically to do.

qns1.  now i have some money and based in the uk, i wanted to know which isp would be cost effective to setup exchange 2007/2013 and win 7, win 8, win 8.1 and have the ability to send/receive email externally  ?

note: i am currently with virgin media using the 'modem/enable' setting that allows me to receive a public ip address that only changes every few months, so that is perfect for me!!!!

I don't know how to UK works so i can't really help you there but i might be able to steer you in the right path. Here in the US our providers require a business account to allow port 25 to be opened. You would simply need to price out what a business account would cost with the different providers and make sure that it includes the ability to send email. Most business accounts will come with a static IP address. You will also want to get a domain name for your emails if you don't already have one.
