Exchange Server - No Static IP Address

I want to setup Small Business Server 2003 to run Exchange Server for email, etc but do not have static IP address. Is it possible to get around this by using some third party site to overcome this or will I have to change ISP's to be able to get a static IP address?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not recommended but you should be able to use DDNS.

DDNS will work like Rick said. A thing to remember is that many ISP:s block outgoing port 25..

Also some people blacklist all DHCP ranges decalred by ISPs.
Really best to get a fixed address, especially if you want to do web access and so on.

As carolchi said you may have trouble sending mail but dyndns has a service called MailHop Outbound which enables you to use a smart host for outbound traffic. Not trying to promote DynDNS. All DDNS providers offer that service

Exchange on a dynamic IP address works fine. I have three or four clients doing it and I did it myself for two years.

Thanks. I'm using this method until I can change ISP's and get back to one who offers static IP addresses...
