That's a tall order! You need to set up, depending on your email client, pop3/smtp/imap on the Unix server. You will need to create a DNS MX record to point to the mail server. Since I'm not a guru at Unix, I wouldn't be able to tell you how to set up unix mail properly but I'm sure some of the other experts will be able to help you.

Windows clients do not normally accept incoming mail, unless they run a mail server. I suppose it could be arranged, though, by using software. There are a few win based servers around like Mercury. It can be installed on the machine in question and it would accept mail addressed to it. As has been mentioned, there is a lot more to arrange, like DNS records etc. If the PC in question does not have a public IP address, it gets more complicated. The eaasiest way might be to install a server on the unix machine.

You give very little detail here, about the network setup, internet connection and also what you mean by sending mail to one PC... could you elaborate somewhat?
