Not all that often, I've been on a couple of different networks and it's
changes anywhere from weekly to every 3 months. The main thing that
makes it work for me is the backup MX service because then if my IP
changes or I have to take the server offline no-ip will hold all my mail
for (I think) 5 days by default. I moved my server 1/3 of the way
across the country and didn't lose any email at all. With all the
mailing lists I'm on I would guess 100-150+ emails a day, most of it
legit. I don't get much spam (yet) thankfully.
