    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

    might be of help.

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

    $ telnet 25
    Connected to (
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 ESMTP
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    $ telnet 25
    Connected to (
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 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.
