just send a mail to <whatever>@gmail.com


if you have a connection to the internet (not via some HTTP proxy etc.) then it should work

Why would it, unless you set up your server to be an internet mail host, register the domain, and set up a mail server??? You could set up fetchmail to pull mail from gmail down to your local server, though...
