Sure it's possible - there are probably several ways to get it done.
The way I'd do it (old hacker that I am) is by using uucp. I've been
a sysadm in the past (when uucp was the only way to do it) and I'm sure
I'd have it working quickly.  I'd have trouble describing the steps to 
you via e-mail, though - and I'm sure there are modern ways of doing 
this that someone will share.  If not, dselect the uucp package, do a
man uucp, and start an off-line e-mail dialog with me - we'll make it
happen.  BTW, if the machine which supplies your mail connection is
non-unix/linux/solaris/hpux I'm afraid uucp won't work for you.
