Can someone step me through the process (or direct me to the process) of configuring my SBS 2008 to provide Outlook Anywhere facility, without a static IP address? I currently use dyndns for the MX, which works fine.

You will need to use dyndns's custom DNS service. I have instructions on how to so so using no-ip.com 's similar service.

You should use a smart host to send out email. If you do not have a static IP address and you send mail out you are just asking to be put on RBL DNSRBL. You may already be on some that block whole blocks of Dynamic IP addresses.

Thanks - it was as easy as that. Adding the Custom DNS facility to my dyndns account and replicating DNS entries, resolved the issue.
