Yes, no opposition from here, that is somthing for the MUA configuration 
though. The System itself needs a simple localy functional MTA to send 
messeges to its users etc. That is a nice feature MUA should be configured 
for it by default. The MTA should just work seamlessly out of the box though. 
MTAs doing network requests when configured to be local-only have certainly a 
configuration bug.

I think my notebook needs a network filesystem /home with disconnected 
operation that syncs up automaticly ;-) (intermezzo, reiser4?)

Personaly I prefer receiving (SMTP) or fetching (pop3) mail localy and use 
IMAP only within the lan or in environments where allways-on connections are 
available (VPN etc.). Never liked imap on notebooks with sometimes only 
occasionaly dial-up.
