Exchange Server 2010 Setup With DynDNS & SubDomain Creation

Hi All

I am trying to setup my own Exchange 2010 Lab Environment. I do not have a Public IP or Static IP so I am going to use Dynamic DNS. I need assistance in setting up Exchange 2010.
I have completed the Typical Installation of Exchange Server 2010 and Internally I can send and receive Emails. But I want Emails to be public as well. So I have registered my domain name with GoDaddy. Now I want to create another subdomain such as "mail.yourdomain.com".

Firstly, I have an option in GoDaddy's Domain Manager that says create Forward SubDomains. Here i can create the subdomain but it is asking me to forward to another http address which I have no clue about. So I need to know how to properly setup the subdomain "mail.yourdomain.com" for an Exchange Setup.

Then I have registered with www.dyn.com for the DynamicDNS Setup. Here it actually does a sync with the IP that is changing to a hostname. This is what i understand.

Now, I want this "mail.yourdomain.com" to be always in sync with my dynamic IP Address given by the ISP. So that I can publicly send emails and as well as use OWA via Internet.

Please help me.

Thanks

In Go Daddy, while creating an MX Record, which IP Address should i enter?
Is it the current dynamic IP or the dyndns hostname ?

you need the mx record to point to your dyndns name - you cant point it to the ip as that will regularly change.
personally i would speak to you ISP and get a fixed Ip address or you will have problems as dns records get cached all over the place, so even using dyn dns some people will have trouble emailing you
