Well, my conclusion is that you've done something to the basic smail
satellite option - specifically, your /etc/smail/directors file has
something in it besides the smartuser director. What you appended of your
configuration isn't enough to tell. (It's the /etc/smail/directors file
that controls local mail delivery) By default, when using the satellite
option, /etc/smail/directors is set up so that smail will not deliver any
local mail. (and this precludes using fetchmail to store mail locally)
