hi mate,

For sending email you need to external DNS server- i believe it should work by defualt - check the message tracking or if you are receiving any non-delivery report post that one.

For incoming mail :
Contact your local ISP example like godaddy.com
Create a MX record for your domain with the ip address, that ip address is given by ISP and that should your send server (Send server - can be your smtp server, or any exchange server ip address)

If you have access to your domains dns records via a webconsole, you need to add an mx record that points at your external facing IP address (this can be found from whatismyip.com) If you are trying this on a dynamic IP address in a test environment then fine, but if it's for business purposes ensure you have a static IP as most places simply wont accept mail from dynamic IP addresses even if you are using a dyndns hostname for security/spam reasons (as I found out the hard way when setting up my home Exchange Server)

You then need an A record on your domain control panel that points at your external IP too I believe.  As the guy said above, mail should work fine FROM your domain providing you are using a valid SMTP.  Again, your ISP may provide SMTP auth, but providers such as Sky don't anymore.

1) Ask ComCast to set up your MX, PTR, A records on their records to point to your Exchange Server OR which ever other server that would be responsible to receive emails from internet (Could be your anti-spam / EDGE / ISA etc) - the ip address of this box needs to be given to your ISP. Ideally, a 48-72 hrs delay would be seen for updation of DNS across the globe.

2) Ask ComCast for their ip address to be set on your SMTP Connector for outgoing emails, so you need to create a SMTP Connector on your Exchange Server and place the smart host entry ip address set (to the ip provided by ComCast for outgoing emails)
