inbound email configuration

Hello everyone.
I'm a little confused about inbound email configuration…
This is my context:
- I installed Alfresco 3.4 on a server in my lan
- Usually I use gmail as email client (my email account is myemail@gmail.com)

I would like to test the ability of Alfresco to receive email content directly to specific nodes.
So:
a) I create Alfresco user USER1 (email myemail@gmail.com) and assign it as part of email contributor's group (EMAIL_CONTRIBUTORS)
b) I run Action functionality to add the Email Alias aspect and I give the USER1 node (draft_doc) an email alias "testinbox"

Questions:
1) It is sufficient to configure only the alfresco-global.properties?
1) how should I configure it ? especially email.server.domain=??????????
2) who do I send the mail (and relative attached docs) to test the Alfresco inbound functionality? I suppose to testinbox@xxxxxx, where xxxxxx = ?

Thanks in advance.
