I'd take the $10 and spend $5 of it and buy a Google For Business[1]
account. Point your MX records at Google and let them handle the email

As for the dynamic IP thing, your router might support pushing updates
to a dynamic DNS provider. There are a few free DNS provides out there
that support this I'm sure.
