You actually can have an arbitrary domain name, as long as you´ve got
an DNS MX record pointing to the right server. 
There´re various ways to solve the transfer problem (fetchmail,
uucico, smtp etc.). 

I recommend that you take a look at Bryan Costales "sendmail" Chapter 17
"DNS and sendmail" published by O`Reilly.
