SBS 2003 R2 Exchange MX Record?

To anyone who can help the now emotionally challenged.....

Scenario: have SBS 2003 R2 installed and configured on network. Our
current exchange is outsourced but am attempting to bring email
in-house... slowly. We have 2 options - cut off the hosted exchange
completely or utilize them as a backup server while our in-house
exchange serves as the primary mail server. Problem is that I need to
locate both the MX and A records. I have the IP for the A record but
have yet to find anything within SBS 2003 indicating that it is an MX
record. This is really becoming a tickler for me seeing that I have been
messing around with this for almost 2-weeks now. Anyone that can help
and assist in making certain that my SBS 2003 is properly configured for
mail and locating the MX would be very much appreciated.

So you have a static public IP for your internet connection from the SBS server?
Who ever handles your public DNS records, have them create the A record for mail.domainname.com and pointed to your public IP. Then have them create the MX record with a priority 0 pointing to the new A record

Just to emphasize the info Cris gave you these are public DNS records and there is nothing on your SBS DNS that needs to be configured.
