I don't know if you can do it with SMAIL, but there is a mini-howto on how
to do this with SENDMAIL -- The title is something about "sendmail" and
"queueing". I set it up once long ago and haven't touched it since (so
I've long since forgotten the name of the howto I used), but it walks you
through customizing the sendmail.cf file so the mail is queued and then
only delivered when sendmail "runs the queue". I set up my system so that
sendmail does not run the queue when I'm not connected to the Internet.
When I connect to the Internet, sendmail is stopped and then started with
the necessary parameters to run the queue (-q10) every 10 minutes.
