A switch for these functions is not worth the effort.
IMO it would be better to skip send/fetchmail in poll.tcpip if the
corresponding service is activated for the current runlevel.

This is easy for fetchmail:
chkconfig --check fetchmail

But sendmail may be provided by different mail services (sendmail, postfix,
exim, ...). Further it might be necessary to call sendmail -q even if a
mailservice is active. What do we have to check for sendmail? Can a sendmail -q
from poll.tcpip prevent at all, that a mail daemon is started?
To _all_ (not only Werner) mailserver maintainers: please help here!
