karthick87 linked to a good post on getting dyndns up for others connecting to you. the problem with sending emails, however, is "what mail relay is going to trust a dyndns domain?" I would talk to my internet provider and see if they'll allow that sub-domain to send emails on their mail relay. until you find an amicable mail relay the rest of the configuration is a moot point.

Right on... it's trivial to send email from any PC with an SMTP server running - the problem is getting the email delivered anywhere without it being rejected. –  Nathan Osman Dec 13 '10 at 17:49
