I worked with BES a long time ago, but I'll try to recall.
First step - you should register a user on your Exchange/Domino/NovellGroupwise server with mailbox.
This mailbox address, say firstname.lastname@example.org will be used for enterprise activation. Just specify this address on your device (Options-Enterprise Activation) and run the activation via menu.
My BES server was setup with internal ip address like 192.168.0.52 but it had access to the Internet. So, real ip address for BES server was not necessary.
You may get the documentation for your BES server here

There is a chapter: "Adding user accounts to the BES"
I think it will be helpful, even if you're using Exchange/Novell

Connecting a device to the BES should not take too much time for you.
For me it took about 10 minutes. It should be easy.
