Hmm, I have no (reliable) local smtp server: I want to forward the mail to 
recipients back at our ISP's smtp server. So far I have an untested 
fetchmailrc that goes...

defaults no fetchall keep
poll mail.ourISP.co.uk
    protocol POP3 username thisabsentuser password theirpassword
    smtphost mail.ourISP.co.uk user thisabsentuser password theirpassword

...but of course I want to forward these to some specific recipients (also at 
our ISP). Any ideas?

A motion to adjourn is always in order.
