No-ip.com will relay mail on an alt port. I;ve been running a MS SBS
from my home on Cox home cable for about 2 years. Full exchange and
remote access using no-ip.com to fix the DHCP issue and alt port SMTP.
Cant beat the price/speed of a home account ;-) I think I pay about 20 a
year for no-ip I cant remember.

If you can justify the costs of doing so, it is a good solution. For
people like me who do this both as a hobby and for a non-profit
organization, the trick is finding a place to host that server that
won't cost an arm and a leg.
Other than my time of installing it and configuring it, I have no costs. I
run it on my iMac that sits at home. My DSL provider has no problems with
servers. Volume is low enough that my 384Kbps upstream is adequate. Until
a few months ago, that iMac was also my main desktop machine. While it's
now a dedicated server, there's nothing about Mailman and whatever MTA you
use that requires them to be on a dedicated server - they'll be quite
happy to chug along in the background.

The problem is that not everyone has an ISP that is willing to allow
a user to run an SMTP server or web server on a home machine.

The server my friend owns that hosts my stuff is on a Cox business
account with a static IP. Cox is one of many ISPs that won't allow
their subscribers to run such a server on a standard home broadband
connection, they will only allow such traffic on a business account.

As with everything, your mileage will vary.
