For the LAN to access the Internet, the easiest way is using Proxy.  If you do not want to add TCP/IP to your LAN, you will need to install a Web-proxy.  An example of Web-proxy is Microsoft Proxy Server.  Using M's proxy server can allow your LAN to use IPX to access the Internet through the proxy.  The main drawback of using M's product is expansive, it requires NT server, proxy server, clients access license, etc.  For a non-expansive solution, use Linux with Socks proxy, but your LAN will require to add TCP/IP.  If your workstation use Win95, it is easy to add since 95 includes TCP/IP; if you use Win3.1, you are required to use winsock program such as Trumpet Winsock.

If you would like to use linux with socks, nothing will due with the mailing system.  You can use local sendmail of the Linux machine for mailings.

Hope this help.
