Alright, thanks for all the answers.  After all responses, smarthost 
seems best.  It looked too difficult to script it anyways with different 
responses from different servers out there.  I just really like the warm 
fuzzy having it delivered directly to the final destination.  Seting it 
up after this message.

Thanks again all.
