Since I use Netscape Messenger as my e-mail client, I handle this case
by just using Compose,
then saving unsent messages in the Drafts folder. I can later command
Netscape to send
the queued messages. Sendmail is really not good to use on laptops. It
assumes that you are always connected and DNS is always available; it
simply wasn't designed to work in an environment where DNS is not
available, so I wouldn't recommend trying to use it in one.
