sounds like your ISP only allows certain services through and intercepts 
the rest as you do not have a fixed IP.
may want to talk to them as they control the DNS and reverse DNS, both 
of which should be correct for email servers to function correctly. 
Basically, to do an email server you need a fixed IP.
