Use a script that works out where you are, to set up a tunnel. Mine, for the
ssh tunnel for imap, uses resolv.conf to take a best guess where I am.
(simple, since that it check if I'm at home, and logs into the server, if
not, it logs into the firewall, and points the port forward at the mail

If you're going on what I said about courier, I think you're missing that I
meant that if you run the server, use courier as the server. Then you can have
an Outbox folder.. Courier sucks, but that feature is nice. (I'd use cyrus,
but thats overkill, and well, uw is just stupid)
