That's what I was trying to do, except that I wanted to fetch the mail via
MH (inc -h <host>, according to the manpages).
smail is running really nice, I'm sending e.g. this mail using elm and
smail. My problem was that in Debian, MH is configured to send its mail via
smtp, and this didn't work (perhaps MH can't connect to a local smtpd?).

Anyway, now it looks like I'll stick to elm...

To be honest, I don't even know how runq is called on my system -- it
simply works...
(I've looked in /etc/crontab, but I couldn't find it there -- magic! :) 

Another silly question: How do I hang up the PPP connection "correctly"?
By now, I use "kill <PID>", but I think this isn't the most elegant
