trying to send email.  you don't expect it to be delivered but you want it
to be queued so as soon as you do connect it gets sent.

problem is that if you were connected when you booted sendmail binds to your
ethernet/ppp interface and times out trying to talk to itself.

one solution to this is to use the dummy module to up your ethernet ip on
your box.
