For me a mix of qmail and fetchmail worked beautifully until I got a
static (at which point fetchmail was no longer required). I did it all
with one machine but if you really want you could use two (though I
don't see the point). Fetchmail would retrieve the messages when
connected and qmail would handle the delivery. All clients would then
connect to that box and retrieve their mail. Hope this helps,
