Yes, it's a work-around.  I may have misunderstood the original question...
but what I thought the poster was trying to do was retrieve email from a
university mailbox and simply forward it somehow to an ISP mailbox.  MTA's
 usually have more sophisticated functionality that's not necessarily
required in this particular case.  The nc proxy seemed to fit the poster's
request for a "simple" solution.
