Yes sure, a lot of providers do this. But you need a special license (SPLA = Service Provider License Agreement) with Microsoft.

Have a look here:

If you are looking at this from a business standpoint, you would probably be better off to resell Office 365 and Exchange cloud services. Otherwise that's what you'll find yourself competing with.

Suit yourself. I looked at trying to provide my own service and found there was no way to compete with O365 on price.

So to answer your question, as Bembi already said, you require a special license from Microsoft. Other than that it is very similar to any other Exchange installation.
