You have two major choices, neither one of which is what you
want to hear.

1. You can subscribe via some other address. GMail, Fastmail,
whatever. Let other people handle your mail for you, for money
or not.

2. You can run a mail server... somewhere else. Your employer
doesn't want you running a mail server, and you should probably
honor that desire by not running a mail server on their network.
Rent a virtual machine, a physical server or colocate one of
your own boxes someplace where the network and power is

-dsr- also not listmaster
