      SMTP and Exchange Server dynamic IP issues

      WHo knows if or how I can get my home network to send/receive exchange server messages properly using dynamic WAN/Internet and not static cos Im told there usually banned from mx records cos there always changing and my domain provider wont authorise any with no exception?

      we have a domain .org.uk and a draytek 2600G router with server 2k3 and 2k8r2 with exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010 I guess one could be allocated specific sent connection but thats not the problem, the dynamic IP from sky is so I am told.

      Im great with servers just not this part of networking as the ISPs have done it for me before, do sky have a smart SMTP server that can be used or are there others etc? I only want it for testing and admin practice training so its not going to be hammered but I would love it if I could get it to work properly. It sends periodically to yahoo.co.uk but its when it feels like it not when I want it too, as for receive, haha not got a clue and help needed to understand what mx records need to be changed where.

      You can apply to Skyuser to use their SMTP. Do a search.

      In the past I used to use dyndns to track my IP address, and their mail hop service for SMTP. 15dollars a year.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Punning servers in against the Sky BB T&Cs so don't go asking Sky about it!!

      Personally, I don't know though
