Re: Sending email(smail)

   I would like to have email that I send when offline be queued for later
   deliver when I connect.  How can I do this?

When mail is sent when you're offline, the mail daemon queues it,
because it can't connect to the remote host.  It retries every so
often for a few days, then gives up.  The easiest thing to do is to
just let the daemon queue it, and then, when you're online, run the
`runq' command to have it attempt delivery immediately.

Of course there are other solutions but this is the simplest.  If you
use diald it won't work of course.  Maybe the diald filters can be
configured to not bring the connection up for packets sent to the smtp
