Who said anything about being required to use your ISP's mail server?  I 
don't think I have, ever.  You need to use one with a static IP and 
reasonable rDNS, which could be anywhere.

Also, if the snoops are interested enough in you to drop an NSL on your 
ISP, you have worse problems than running your own mail server will solve.
