  OK, it appears you found the reason I should not send mail when I am 
really tired.  The problem is as follows (I'll quote myself so as to re 
introduce the lead in to the problem):

  Ok.  The problem is that I am unable to open a network connection.  I 
have read through the options.h file, searched the server.c file, and 
everything seems to be in order.  I'm to assume that the OUTBOUND_NETWORK 
once defined will enable all the appropriate functions, but it does not 
seem to work.

  I hope this clears things up, :).
