This list gets a bit fussy about non-apache stuff and mail fits that description but. . .

There are such things as MX records in the DNS database. I suspect you could create such a
record on Network Solutions' site that points to your "email via my present ISP".

You're using now. That presumably points to your current web host or ISP who
provides the "authority" section for the DNS servers. There be gremlins everywhere but use
dig to find out what the MX records look like now. DNS entries propagate slowly and what I
got may not be current.

dig       3600    IN      CNAME           3600    IN      A

qmail or sendmail on your own machine are next but spam can easily overload a user-speed connection.
I'm thinking about it right after I get apache 2 working properly on the Linux box in the
corner. Without this list I wouldn't even be close.
