    You can not send emails at all or just to the outside?
    If the problem is just to the outside, then a search on this site for 'dynamic dns' or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_DNS

    might be of help.

    Maybe your ISP is blocking outgoing port 25, to check this make this little tests:

    Code:
    $ telnet smtp.google.com 25
    Trying 209.85.237.25...
    Connected to smtp.google.com (209.85.237.25).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 smtp.google.com ESMTP
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    
    $ telnet mail.howtoforge.com 25
    Trying 78.46.230.211...
    Connected to mail.howtoforge.com (78.46.230.211).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 mh1.hostmu.com ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)
    If you don't get an answer you need to contract a service like no-ip alternate port that provides you a mail relay server running in a different non blocked port.
