yup, and (still) works perfectly: as one can send mail to
geoff at radiomail.mpk.ca.us which then gets summarily CNAME'd to radiomail.net
(and in the process picks up radiomail.net's MX record) and delivers it to
me on strange.networkguild.org's server, viz.:

radiomail.mpk.ca.us.    900     IN      CNAME   radiomail.NET.
