The fixed IP address for an extra $12 per month seemed like a better option to 
me, and is what I went with.  It does allow the direct incoming connections 
to port 25 (no proxy), and I no longer have to worry about dynamic DNS 
updates etc.

They don't seem to be promoting this option, but I am very happy with it, and 
I think it allows far more flexability than the email forwarding option.  
Just make sure you are not running an open relay.

My 2 cents.
