Thanks, of those dma looks like a perfect match and nullmailer also 
would work.

Yes, I could -- but I'd feel safer in the presence of my own capacity 
for stupid mistakes using a piece of software that just can't listen for 
mail, in this particular scenario. So dma or nullmailer both fit the

out the best.
