Does your system have access to the internet?  Can you ping systems outside your network?  

Are you looking to receive mail on your unix box vs. your internal network?  If so, you should be able to recieve email at:  yourusername@yoursystemname.yourdomainname.

Unless, this system has been configured not to receive mail (your network might have been setup to channel all mail into a specific system).  What's your system name and user name, I'll try to send you an email.

Do you want a permanent internet connection or a dial up connection.  If you want permanent connection, you could do ISDN, frame relay, or just dial up with a modem and lease an IP from your provider.  If you do that, you'll need to register a domain name with rs.internic.net.

If you want to send email to the outside world, but you are not allowed to for any reason, this is the best way of sending email:

telnet to a mailserver on port 25 (e.g. telnet rem.nl 25)
type:
mail from: <yourname>
rcpt to: <email adres> (e.g. bill_gates@microsoft.com)
data
<enter your text here>

(Always end with a dot on a single line!)
And the email will be delivered within seconds.

Enjoy mailing.
