Hello Hans,

if you have an pop3 account by an ISP you must fetch mails an then you can
delifer mail via SMTP.
So, first you insert into /kolab/etc/postfix/
relayhost = your smtp host from ISP
defer_transports = smtp

if you use fetchmail from a script like this
fetchmail -a -f /etc/fetchmailrc
at the end of the script you must flush postfix to delifer mails
/kolab/sbin/postfix flush
