Why not set up your machine as a pop3 server, use fetchmail/exim with a cron
job to get all mail delivered to their respective accounts, and point
netscape to its own belly-button (I mean, your own machine :) as the mail
server?  I'm not sure, but this may require your setting up named (BIND) as
well, unless a direct reference to the  localhost works...
