   I'm using comcast here.  Dynamic IP number that occasionally
changes.  DynDNS to handle that, I run a site with my resume + mail all
without a hitch.  I have sendmail route my outgoing mail through
Comcasts smtp server and incoming I handle directly.  (No problems with
reverse DNS that way.)  Since I'm very low volume it's not a problem of
any kind as far as traffic goes.
