This post apparently speaks to your issue, but perhaps not in quite  
the way you imagined:

Probably everything that a windows dhcp client can configure is  
revealed in the command
	ipconfig /all	
ISC-DHCP has a lot of capabilities that are not used by clients.  For  
example, DHCP can give out the address of pop and smtp server, but I  
know of no dhcp client that will configure mail.
