The registration needs to be at your ISP or wherever your external DNS is 
hosted.  Modifying your local DNS won't help unless you have that IP listed as 
the primary DNS for the domain.

So far Exchange isn't your problem.  If your networking configuration is 
incorrect then there aren't any e-mail programs that are going to provide 
inbound e-mail to your home.  SMTP and DNS are not unique to the Microsoft 
world, it comes from Unix.
