So I have setup a private active directory domain and a seperate exchange server. I can send/recieve inside the LAN and send from the LAN, but I'm waiting to get the domain into my control in a couple weeks. I have a web/DNS server coming tomorrow for the company's public site and I'm wondering if my theory is correct.

I will have setup the website and DNS properly for the web, but what about mail? I'll be running this behind a NAT/PAT routed connection on a T1 with a single static address. Would I just make an MX record to my mail server and point back to my IP and forward port 110 (POP3) to my mail server? Thanks!

pretty much...you may need to set up some NAT/access rules for the exchange box in your router...(i've got such settings) since you'll want your mail server with a static ip...

who are you getting your t1 from that is only giving you a single ip address? i've got a theoretically unlimmited amount of ip's that i can request from our service provider (at&t)...is this a managed internet service? or are you managing the T1 router?
