I think you'll need your ISP to host the domain for you. My ISP 
will do it for free. Other's think you're a business and charge you
3-4 times a personal account.

Your ISP could either virtually host mail account(s), or perhaps 
store and forward mail, probably uucp, but maybe straight sendmail,
without a static address, this could be tricky.


To most people, solutions mean finding the answers.  But to
chemists, solutions are things that are still all mixed up.
