Even if they are rare, you will still have problems like that.

You could run your own mail server at your house and use your ISP's mail 
server as a smart host and get past the rejections because of your 
dynamic IP.

It now sounds like you already have a mail server at your house (and 
likely versed in some of the problems that can pose) and all you are 
considering adding is Mailman.  If this is the case, I'd suggest giving 
Mailman a try.  Conversely if you are talking about setting up a new 
mail server just to run Mailman, I'd suggest looking in to a hosted 
service.  (I think setting up a new mail server just for a mailing list 
is a bit of a steep curve.)
