Actually, my fetchmail seems to be working fine, I just had to change the
poll time. I still can't get sendmail to send my mail right away. What I
would like it to do is:
1. When I am offline simply spool the mail till the next time I
connect, if I am offline it is usually for a reason and I don't want a
connection initiated.
2. When I an online send my mail as soon as I hit <control>X (I am
using pine).

Is there a way I could do this? I know I can do it some how with the
settings in /etc/rc.config, but what would be a good way of doing this?

Once again, Thank you all for the help.
