The only way that this plan would work is if MSU was the authoritative
server for your domain.  This kind of thing actually can be contracted
for, but I don't know how difficult it is.  You can pop off mail to
hostmaster at msu.edu to see if it can be done.  The fellow's name is Doug
Nelson.  He's a nice guy, but I don't know the limits of what he can and
can't do as far as hosting outside domains.
