However, we are not allowed to create a subdomain and MX record in the DNS server because it is hosted by other party. Is there any way to configure our Notes server to route STMP e-mail to "" using, without DNS involvement?
You could create an entry in the hosts file on the local Domino server with the IP address of the Linux mail server.
