Setting up Exchange 2003 to work with a dynamic IP address

Experts, I need assistance with Exchange 2003.  I would like to know how to setup Exchange 2003 to work with a dynamic IP address.  Everytime I try and send an email from the inside out, hotmail bounces back an error message stating that it does not receive emails with dynamic IP addresses.  Could someone help me setup (step by step)  exchange to work with a dynamic ip?  
I have tried using dyndns, but that is confusing me too.

most mail servers wont send to an IP address that is a dynamic IP address.  You are going to need a static IP to receive mail.

Right now I am able to send from my hotmail account to mydomainname.com without any problems.  One problem that I am having right now is sending from mydomainname.com to my hotmail account.  I receive the following message (attached file).

I wrote this article on how to do use Exchange with a dynamic IP address:

You basically will need to use an SMTP Connector to route outbound email through your ISPs SMTP server.
