Sending mail offline:

- install the smail package
- configure as internet host system (*don't* use satellite system)
  with smarthost (if you want to use it)
- your mails will automatically be queue if you're offline (use mailq
  to look into the queue)
- if you go online run the runq command to tell smail to send its queue

Reveiving mail from pop account:

- install the fetchmail package
- run fetchmail while being online, fetchmail will delivers new mail
  messages to your local mailbox (/var/spool/mail/$LOGNAME)


I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
