Yes.

You must create an email account first. You can either do this with ISPConfig or on the command line (if you don't want to install ISPConfig): http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2

Afterwards you can use an email client to send and receive emails. Of course, the MX record for your domain must point to your server. And since your server is behind a router and almost all dynamic IP addresses are blacklisted nowadays, you should configure Postfix to relay emails through another server: http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_re...her_mailserver
