I have a dynamic ip address and i just recently bought a domain.  I am letting no-ipl handle the dns stuff since its dynamic.  I want to be able to have mail, website, etc.  Can i route through iis and have like http://mail.domain.com really be a mask for the site http://domain.com/mail/ ? Also is there a reason to have a computer setup as a DNS server on my local network?

You can set up a machine on your DSL/Cable connection that does almost everything if you want:

You will need a firewall machine to handle the NAT routing and port access. The same machine can run IIS and an email server, mine even runs webmail and a VPN as well.

I recommend Kerio WinRoute for the firewalling and NATting, Kerio Mailserver for the email and IIS for the WEB services.

You don't need externally facing DNS, but if you run AD in the internal side you will need DNS to handle that. You can set DNS up internally to route all external requests out to your ISP DNS Servers (just removing the .ROOT zone usually does it!)

Set the whole lot up and make sure that your port services don't conflict:

IIS serves Port 80
Webmail serves port 443
Email Server serves ports 110 and 25

If your running the IIS SMTP Server to send email from your website then configure the service for a different port - above 1024 is preferred.
