Sorry for this (most likely) blatantly stupid question, but can you use a mail server program to redirect mail to, say a hotmail account?...

    Sure you can easily setup a forward to point towards another address.

    Just use your ~/.forward file. If your username is dolda and the address is bigbard@webmail.com, add this line:
    Code:
    dolda: bigbard@webmail.com
    See aliases(5) for more info. The file format is exactly the same.
