	It's OK, you are in good company.... others have done this also...

Let me make sure I understand you correctly:

You want to use PPP to connect to the world

You want to be able to send mail off-line and have PPP start via cron &
pure the mail q

You want to be able to download mail via cron

Does your ISP have pop3 support or imap?

If so, you can use PopOver.app to download mail & feed it to procmail.
Set the mail directory to

|/usr/local/bin/formail -e -s procmail

You can use this in yourprocmailrc file:

:0wfh *^From PopOver
| formail -I'From ' | formail

and that will recreate the 'From ' line and procmail can deliver the mail
(we can talk procmail later)

If you want help setting up sendmail, checkout this most helpful guide


(note: using this guide I was able to setup my config once and have used
it through 3 reinstalls... this past time I setup sendmail in less than 5


is the newest sendmail setup for NeXTStep/OpenStep.

As for PPP -- what version are you using?  I am using ppp2.3 under NSFIP
and it hasn't crashed once...

Feel free to ask me more questions if I've missed something...
