Right now the SBS2003 works fine on the LAN for email. It is configured to download email through a POP connection, and the clients then connect to the exchange server. The clients can only check their email locally but want to be able to check it from their home computers or mobile devices.

The server is behind a Comcast business modem/router.

I am thinking that what I have to do is change the way the server receives email by disabling the pop connection, and pointing the mx records to the Comcast assigned IP address.

I am not sure what all I would have to reconfigure though. Is there a guide someone can point me to, or explain the steps I should take, or suggest a better way to do what I way to accomplish?

Web email access is enabled (though it only works locally), so I was also thinking I could connect the other LAN port on the server to the Comcast router and assign the server a static public IP so they could access the web email, though this would no be ideal since it would be a hassle to access on a computer or phone.
