Well we would like to setup our own exchange server at work,so I was going to finish the exchange setup onto our main server at work here . However before I do this, I need to figure out how to configure the DNS, A record, and MX records on ctsindia.com under our domain name srikarn.org.Now I do not know what to change on ctsindia.com so that it points to our external IP (example so that it can get access to our exchange server? I also need to keep it that when people type www.srikarn.org it goes to that ip address to access to the company hosting our website.Now our ISP is from bsnl (dataone). We currently have a static ip with them of . Is there anything else I need to do with them for me to get this exchange server live onto the internet? As far as the server goes, I can set that up without a problem, it is just trying to figure out how to get the darn thing live onto the internet. I am just so confused with what I have to do with ctsindia.com so that when people send email to johndoe@srikarn.org, it goes to our exchange server instead of theirs
I really hope someone can clear up what I am supposed to put onto ctsindia.com..

Since you seem to be able to connect to your public IP address on port 80, I can think of two possibilities:

1. Your server is not actively listening for port 25 connections.  This can happen if SMTP is not running.  Check the Services on your Exchange server to make sure Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is running.  Another easy way to test is to perform the telnet connection test on your Exchange server.

2. Port 25 connections to your public IP address are not reaching your server.  This can be caused by your ISP blocking the port, or your own firewall is blocking the port.
