Sure, I could use a small smtp gateway server that could deliver an
email to a remote smtp service, but I want to use the offline spool
function of osso-email - I would like the email to be spooled until
network connectivity is restored.

Installing a full-blown mta like postfix just for store-and-deliver
operation seems too bloated to me.

can anyone explain the meaning of cache.xml and cache.xml0 in the Outbox
folder or is there some documentation about it?
