  • First, do you have a "real" domain name that you registered with someone like Network Solutions.

    "Real" is the opposite of something like mydomain.local (which only works internally).

    If you want to go with No-IP, you have to sign up for their services.

    Otherwise, you'd configure Exchange just as you would normally (Receive Connector with Anonymous permissions for example, possibly one to one NAT if you have a firewall, maybe publish OWA in ISA/TMG if applicable).

  • You can use the services of either of these organizations:

    http://dyn.com/dns/

    http://www.no-ip.com/

    I'm most familiar with the second.

    Essentially, you need a registered domain name like (the omnipresent MS example) contoso.com

    You can register a domain name (for a price) with Network Solutions or (probably less expensive) GoDaddy...

    http://www.networksolutions.com/

    http://www.godaddy.com/

    Let's say you use GoDaddy.

    In the section where you manage your domain name, you indicate the name servers provided by either No-IP or DYN.

    In the case of No-IP, you'll have to indicate your domain name and they will map...

    contoso.com

    mail.contoso.com

    www.contoso.com

    etc.

    to your IP address. Yes, the dymanically assigned IP address provided by your ISP.

    But what if it changes?!

    Well, you install a small program that you can download from the No-IP website and this program updates your IP address so it always matches mail.contoso.com

    In summary, that's how it works.

    And I know it works.

    For the most part.

    If you want to send to recipients who have very strict anti-spam rules and would reject messages sent from a sender lacking correct PTR records, then you could have problems (but No-IP can take care of that as well).

    I'm only emphasizing No-IP because I'm most familiar with their service (using it myself). Other solutions may work just as well.
