If I'm not mistaken, everyone here is connected to the same internet.  I
would argue that in 99% of cases, getting a cheap or free secondary e-mail
account is a better idea than using your local machine, because if you 
really do have an unreliable ISP, you still have to use their server for 
incoming mail, and if mail delays are being caused by something other than
ISP mail server instability (e.g. peering issues), then they will affect your
local server as well.
