There are free or very low cost services for your situation. See

Dynamic DNS is a problem for a server sending email. Many ISPs will do
a reverse lookup on the sending IP and if it doesn't point back to the
sending domain, will reject the mail.

Fom the above wiki page, <http://www.emwd.com/mailman.html> offer list
hosting starting at $4.00 per month, and they are active on this
mailman-users list which is further evidence that they are offering
real Mailman service.

There may be others that would do as well for you.

Thank you, I will look into those options.
