I didn't say that. Even worse, I stated that I now have to
use the mail provider's SMTP "interactively" (through the
MUA). :-)

My main intention was to find a convenient (!) way to locally
submit messages to sendmail (or something else) which would
then do all the "outgoing mail chores" in the background.

Sorry for the confusion.
