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.

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.
