Sure they can. For sending e-mail, all you need is an IP

Right, but to run a "real mail server" you need a static address. Which
can be registered as a valid mail server. Dynamic IP's cannot.
For receiving mail, all you need is a domain name, which has a
set of advertised MXes. Those MXes could point to mail servers
operated by friends of yours who might use UUCP, or some private
routing method to send your mail to whatever your current IP address
is. Those MXes could even point to your own host/domain names, and
the mail would be deferred until such time as you re-connect with
your dynamic DNS provider and update the IP addresses for these names.
Works just fine.
