I'll have to look at this... BUT one problem I see is that I don't have
a real isp. I have to use gmail as the smtp because my internet access
is through cingular's EDGE/GSM network and afaik there is no smtp just
the actual connection.

When I get the time maybe I'll set up an exim/sendmail box or
something.. Of course it's not worht it until I get the stupid card to
work on the desktop....
