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, :).
