Well then there you are then. Stuck because you don't want to pay for a
static IP (which I think is a reasonable position, it is a lousy fee),
and because dynamic IPs pump out spam from bots.

Sort of just the nature of the beast. Get yourself a static IPv6 address
and send mail that way, that would certainly be an
interesting/challenging option. But until the advent of static IP
addresses for everyone, via IPv6, I think you are kind of stuck, and
even then people will still be pumping out spam from those IPs so I
imagine a new way to differentiate between good and bad IPv6 addresses
will be invented.
