Answer

When retrieving mail via SMTP in a dialup situation you can use the utility ntmetrn (glmetrn on unix) to kick the queue for your domain on the remote mail server. The utility is provided as part of the GMS accessory pack available from ftp://ftp.gordano.com.

Usage
———
NTMEtrn [-v] -mMailHost -qQueue [-sPassword -dDestination] [-pPort]

-v Verbose
-mMailHost mailHost where mail is queued
-qQueue Queue identifier
-sPassword Password for queue Queue
-dDestination Destination machine (name or IP [or * if being used with a dynamic IP]) where queue is to be sent
-pPort Port on destination machine (default port 25)
-h Display help

Examples for use with a remote GMS server:

  • If the remote server does not require a password and local server is on a static IP.:
    ntmetrn -mremote.server.dom -qqueued_domain.dom -dlocal.domain.dom
    
  • If the remote server requires a plaintext password and local server is on a static IP:
    ntmetrn -mremote.server.dom -qqueued_domain.dom -srequired_password -dlocal.domain.dom
    
  • If the remote server requires an MD5 password and local server is on a static IP:
    ntmetrn -mremote.server.dom -qqueued_domain.dom -srequired_password -dlocal.domain.dom
    
  • If the remote server requires an MD5 password and local server is on a dynamic IP:
    ntmetrn -mremote.server.dom -qqueued_domain.dom -srequired_password -d*
