DHCP & remote ssh logins

If iptables are setup to only accept ssh logins from particular IPs, how
do people login when they are on the move and have a DHCP allocated IP?

I thought I could do this by sending a mail (from the remote DHCP IP)
formatted in a particular way, to a particular user on the destination
server which would then be processed, which would then cause a change to
the iptables setup.  However, I assume other people have had to solve
this problem and I don't want to re-invent wheels . .

Suggestions appreciated!
