Use fetchmail to recieve mail from IMAP/POP box.

Use local MTA to process outgoing mail, but queue it up and use relaying via
"good" mail server.

RT can send mails via external SMTP host, but it's wrong to use and we consider
to drop this feature for good. RT is not a full featured MTA, so if
something goes
wrong while RT sends email via external SMTP server then mail is just dropped.
