Thanks.  That, without the 'f', does it.  It's sendmail -q.  I just
needed somebody to give my head a bit of a shake. :-)

No ifdown.d in my Slack-10 system but as I'm on dialup, I
could just stick a line into my script that hangs up the phone.  But
how hard is typing "sendmail -q" anyhow? :-)

Tnx all,
