Yes, fetchmail comes in extremely handy! No fuss, and the mail goes
through the local procmail just the same. It just goes.
What I was wondering is about the opposite direction. How can I as

Surely sendmail can do it, but is there anything better? I really don't
want to spend a week reading sendmail docs. Something like
somecommand < email -via smtp.someplace.net
would be ideal (I don't care if the mail doesn't go into any send
queue first). Similar to a recipe action "| $SENDMAIL $SENDMAILFLAGS -t".
