The problem 
     using things like dyndns and forwarding to a dynamic ip is 
that 
     there is a possibility that when your ip has changed mail would be 
     
attempted to be delivered to the next user that gets your previous 
     ip.

Even with v. low dns timeouts there is still that 
     risk.

Better to get a static ip,
      or failing that use a pull system 
like 
     fetchmail.

Your best best is to use qmailrocks installation it works great and
includes smtp routes.  Use your isp's smtp server to relay everything. I
am using it on this server to send you this. There is even a way to set it
up with smtpauth

Also I don't have a problem with a dynamic ip since I have a client
installed there is a couple of places that seem to do a better job then
others. I used dnsexit because it is free so far no complaints.
