I'm not exactly sure what you are asking for but I have a Mandrake 
system on my DSL connected line without a static IP address. I have a 
couple of mailing lists running and use 'fetchmail'. I have mail 
boxes set up with my ISP and run 'fetchmail'  via 'cron' to get the 
incoming messages. My SMTP sever is configured to use my ISPs mail 
server for the outgoing messages.

If this is the kind of thing you are looking for let me know and we 
can discuss it further.
