Get a dyndns.com name for your router public ip address and set up at

Of course, if your IP changes, then mail is going to get screwed up
during the time it takes for next delivery attempt to go to your new IP
address, instead of the old one.

Dyndns, and other such things, are useful for giving yourself a hostname
that you can control, to a static IP. But aren't going to be much good
if you have a dynamic IP. Private webserving's easy enough with a
varying IP, mail serving's another matter.
