I use a separate internet-facing mail server at home in a de-militarised
zone (DMZ) off the firewall rather than allowing a connection directly
into my home server from the net. Email gets from that into the home
network by pull rather than push so the internet-facing server has no way
of getting into the home network by itself.

I use EximConfig for the Exim mailer from
for the internet-facing server and postfix on the internal home network
server. Collection from the internet-facing server is accomplished by
using fetchmail and ETRN from the internal server.
