Without knowing more I'd say it's highly impractical as non-root users cannot bind to any port below 1024 and you'd need access to ports 25 and 110 to receive and read email.

You might be able to employ a workaround if there's a SMTP daemon already running that adds Delivered-To headers to incoming email (ie, Postfix or Qmail) or if you can convince someone who does have root to redirect port 25 to a port you can use, but otherwise you're out of luck.
