Has anyone worked with Xdove mail server??

Hi everyone.

I decided to finally register my IT Consulting business domain and I would like to host my own mail server. I have an enterprise firewall - but I may require help in configuring that as well.

I use Rogers for my ISP and apparently they do not support/offer /allow Port 110 and 25 to be hosted.
But apparently there is a way to this using a Dyndns account......I have seen the end result.
In Dyndns you create a mailhop and point iit coming in on another port, and then the firewall will flip it on the inside??  Something like that.
I have a QNAP TS509pro which is a Linux based NAS with services on it. It comes installed with Xdove on it.

Here is everything I have.
Highspeed Connection
Enterprise Firewall
Dyns Account
Registered Domain

Can someone help me get this going?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!!

My first recommendation would be to switch to a business class ISP that does support port 25.

Although you can use DynDNS this would require you to register your MX records with them and thus anyone performing a resolution against your MX & PTR record would see this as coming from a Dynamic IP address (which is what DynDNS is normally used for) and reject it.
