All you need to do is:
1. Set up the account with your dynamic DNS host. Yourcompany.dyndns.org or
2. Install the update service on your server, so yourcompany.dyndns.org
always points to the right IP address
3. Have your ISP (or whomever hosts yourdomain.com's DNS) set your domain's
primary MX record to yourcompany.dyndns.org. It would also be nice if your
ISP were to act as your secondary MX record themselves, for store&forward
when your server's unavailable. See www.zoneedit.com if they won't do it.
Presuming that port 25 is open and forwarded to your NAT'd Exchange server
IP, and your recipient policy is set up properly, mail should just come
right on in.
