Hope this gets out, My ISP's mail server has been awfull hungry
here the last few days.

Anyways, I've been trying to get ppp -auto working, I get it
running, ps aux shows it, ppp.log says:
	% ppp isp
	... ...
	... ...
	Automatic mode
	Working in auto mode.
ppp.log shows:
	listening at 3000
	PPP started
How does one get it to connect??
Nothing seems to make it callout.
Sending mail, popclient, telnet, ftp... etc... etc...

What am I missing here??

Yup, I can 'telnet localhost 3000' as stated in 'man ppp', Everything
looks ok except for ppp vs PPP. (not connected)

My goal: Auto mail transfer.
A cron job to (check/get) (for/mail) every x minutes/hours.
When there is mail to go out, Connect, send it, If theres new mail
waiting, retreive it.

Thanks all.
