I always recommend people running their own mail system on their
own servers to get their own domain, or subdomain. When I was at
school they created a 'students' subdomain in which anyone could
get a DNS record - ask the people at rit.edu if they can do that
for you, hudson.rit.edu or hudson.students.rit.edu. Ofcourse then
you need to do something with that domain - set the primary MX
to your box if you have a permanent connection and a static IP
address, or put all mail for the domain in a POP3 mailbox that
you can collect using fetchmail, or use UUCP (old but perfectly
suited to these kinds of situations).
