Welcome to LQ

What is a "registered email id"?

You can use your IP if you don't have a registered domain:
username@1.2.3.4

Should work, you'll have to let Sendmail know that you will be relaying through your IP though...

Cool

You could go to no-ip.com or dyndns.com and get your self a free domain.
Never heard of a registered email id

What exactly is a "registered email id"? are you referring to a mail ID like svsalain@linuxquestions.net?

AFAIK you cannot receive mails for your vsnl.com ID on your system, if that is what you are trying to do. One work-around is to use a reply-to address and try the dyndns/no-ip stuff.

However you can send mails as svsalian@vsnl.com using your sendmail.
You can use a pop client to retrieve mails delivered to your vsnl account.
