I mean running sendmail. Their boxes do not accept the connection, but I heard someone mentioned that there is a workarround and saw his box sent cron warning messages.

I will plan to use this email (tigerpeng2001 as reply account), so getting it back is not an issue to me.

If you're just talking a client setup (using Thunderbird or Ecstasy or 
whatever that is) normally, they give you an  email setup. You use their 
smtp and pop servers.  If you're thinking of running sendmail (or which 
ever) and using their box as the initial relay, that's a bit harder. 
Outgoing is not so bad (assuming their box'll accept the connection) but 
getting it back requires having a valid domain etc.
