Peter, it's not a forward as you would do with a mail client, but rather like a mail stop in a big office complex where USPS drops off in one place and someone there takes it the last mile. So your outside mail server receives mail and then sends it on to your local mail server rather than process it there. Your local mail server processes it and that's what you connect to to send and receive from your client (Outlook, etc). Mail from your local server goes to your outside server for final delivery. So your outside server works on standard ports and you use non-standard ports to your local machine so your ISP doesn't know what you're doing.

There's even a way to update your IP address if you have a dynamic IP. Pretty neat and not too hard to setup if you have some computer experience. If you can install Linux you'll be able to do this without too many issues.
