I use putmail[1] to do the same thing.  I forked it[2] and added a few 
features, including OS X keychain support and combining putmail_queue 
into the main distribution.  Lastly, I have a cronjob that checks to see 
if I have an active internet connection and if I do, dequeue all 

One important wrinkle to this setup is that when I send mail, it goes to 
a script that queues it first, then dequeues it immediately if you have 
an internet connection.  That way you never lose a message.  I also do 
other things in the send script like scrape the outgoing message for 
email addresses so they can be added to my address database...
