I use exmh, which uses MH. I use popmail to fetches incoming mail over
PPP. Smail spools outgoing mail if the PPP connection is not open.
When it is, I use runq to empty the spool.
My /etc/ppp/ip-up begins with:
su liw -c 'popclient -P /home/liw/.poppass pop.clinet.fi'
In /etc/crontab I have:
* * * * * root [ -f /var/run/ppp-is-up ] && /usr/bin/runq
* * * * * liw [ -f /var/run/ppp-is-up ] && popclient ....
(The second line has the same popclient command as the first one.)
The Debian /usr/sbin/smailconfig is really wonderful!
