Try mine: 195.240.184.66
And yes, it is static and not "dynamic but unlikely to change rarely".

I started using my own mailserver because the one from my provider was 
down a lot for a while or not delivering within something like 8 hours 
(they seem to be better ATM).
Using my own server I would at least _know_ what was happening to my 
mails.

If I am blocked by something like SORBS when answering installation 
reports or something like that, I will sometimes resend a mail through my 
ISP, sometimes I just say "@$@$@ you, if you don't want to receive my 
mail, then don't".
