In PINE, set the SMTP server to localhost, then make sure that
sendmail is running on your machine.  Your messages will be queued in
your local machine.  In your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ppp
script add the line:

/usr/sbin/sendmail -q

which will flush the queue each time you connect to the internet.
In case you send huge mails to multiple recipients, you will do
yourself a favour by setting a smart relay in /etc/sendmail.cf
pointing to your ISP mail server.

Hope this helps,
