Well, the world keeps turning, and things that used to be soon are no

Increasingly, locations are declining to accept mail from domains they
cannot resolve. It's one, fairly commonly used anti-spam strategy.

So, not having your own domain certainly doesn't prevent you from
sending mail, but it may prevent your mail from getting through. In
fact, it's quite likely that some of it won't go through.

Therefore, it becomes a policy concern, not a technological question.
Can you? Yes. Should you? Maybe not.

If Linux can't solve your computing problem, you need a different problem.
