First putting Domain Member in DMZ is not a gr8 idea. Reconsider your design.

DMZ being lower security than inside, you has to open specific ports to inside from DMZ. You may need to open following port from DMZ to inside.

110 POP
143 IMAP
6** Link state Algorithm routing protocol
Active Directory Communication:
TCP & UDP 389 LDAP to Directory Service
TCP 3268 LDAP to Global Catalog Server
TCP & UDP 88 Kerberos
for the DNS server access:
UDP port 53
Suggest you to limit RPCs Access from DMZ to inside by editing the registry on servers to limit RPC traffic to a specific port (eg 1111). Then open the appropriate ports:
TCP 135 ? RPC endpoint mapper
TCP 1111 ? RPC service port
