Thanks for the help Dave, I forgot to mention that my linux box does not do
the dialling to net it goes via an isdn router. As you can imagine I don't
want the router dialling everytime one message queues, I would like to be
able to control the delivery options to the net. Any suggestions greatly

>Mail should queue on your machine until you dialup again. Then a quick
sendmail -q will dequeu all delayed mail. Postfix has some funky address
rewriting stuff, so you could say, rewrite from internal addressses (i.e.
doc at mail.thehouse to doc at redbrick.dcu.ie). See the canonical(5) manpage. Oh,
and install postfix :)
