connect to exchange using static ip on an iphone

Specs: sbs2003R2
I am not quite sure how to explain this, but I will give it my best shot...

We have an sbs2003r2 box with remote access setup and working, we have a fixed ip on the net which via port forwarding on our router points to the sbs box, this is all working happily.

We are now getting iphones, and everyone wants email access on them, ir they connect via wifi to the local network, then when they try to access exchange they fall over as presumably they are trying to access the fixed ip address of the adsl router so they are trying to loop out and back which fails.

How can I set this up so that on the local network, if someone uses the routers fixed internet ip address, that it converts this to the 192.168.0.2 for our sbs box??

Any help given will be very greatly appreciated, even the correct name for what I am trying to do would be a help... Im not sure if this is nat, ras or whatever :-S

The network type (static, dynamic, whatever) doesn't matter (as far as I know) when it comes to pulling email from your Exchange server. All that really needs to be correct is the server and port information for the program that is retrieving the mail on the phone. Did you setup a program on each of the iPhones to retrieve mail?
