Due to the fact the server initiates connectivity to your ISP to send/receive mail, I would suggest that you remove your exchange server from the DMZ and place the RAS (Dial-up) services on the internal Exchange server, beacuse the number of ports that you would need to open on the firewall has the potential of a security risk.
