Thanks for the answers, I agree that imap may be right, but my dns 
supplier has a quota at 40MB. I like to keep my mails, additional to my 
privat I am following several mailing list, separated, so the quota is 
way to small.
I feel like the best for me is to move my domain here, setting up my own 
server. I have been using djbdn and qmail earlier, but would like to 
change to something more standard, I should manage though, but I am a 
little afraid of the work load setting things up.

So my question at the moment boils down to, witch supplier of dynamic 
dns service to use, that also mx forward without to many restrictions.
