Yes. You should be able to access your POP3 account from anywhere. On a
dialup network (as well as cable and DSL with dynamic IPs) your DNS is
normally set when you establish your network connection.

However, having 2 separate networks running simultaneously (eg. 2 NICS
or 1 NIC and 1 phone line) adds a bit of complexity to things like your
routing table.
