Default Need suggestions. . .

Hi All,

I have a Debian Sarge HOWTO setup and it's running aboslutely perfectly, however I have run into the issue of being blocked by some larger providers due to having a dynamic IP. BTW I'm using ZoneEdit.com to handle the domain name.

My whole point of bringing my servers inhouse was to reduce spam since my hosting service was doing nothing about it and to reduce expenses.

Since I've gotten the the server setup and running it's reduced my spam by 97% which is amazing!! However, if I have to purchase a static IP, it sorta defeats the purpose of "saving money".

So I'm thinking there must be a way to utilize my ISP's smtp server for sending the emails while still using my own smtp server for receiving??

If this is possible it will save me quite a bit each month in "static ip costs".
