Re: Fixed IP?

@Vic

Yes, I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing that, unless you really have a compelling reason to. The best way to do this is to have the fixed IP, rDNS and so forth that you'll get from a friendly and wise ISP.

Of course, while that's effectively what I'll be describing, hopefully there'll be plenty of info for anyone who wants to do the same sort of thing, but with their mail setup elsewhere, whether that be a small office, or a dedicated server that you'd prefer to set up yourself, not least because unlike using, say, Plesk, it won't all suddenly fall apart and sulk just because you looked at it wrong.
