7 Reverse DNS will work (modulo down times when the address changes,
8 like you describe). But, back when I used to run a mailserver using
9 that setup, I still ran into SMTP servers that rejected my mail
10 because it was coming from a dynamic IP address. Even though the
11 reverse DNS lookup and MX record were all kosher, they still knew my
12 address was in a range that was allocated dyamically and refused to
13 accept incoming mail. That was 10 years ago. It's hard to believe
14 SMTP servers have gotten more lenient...
