[clug] Recommendations for store and forward mail servers?

so, I'm after a store and forward mail server for my laptop. I want it 
to accept mail destined for anyone on the loopback interface only, and 
only attempt to deliver it to the upline smarthost when I tell it to (ie 
when the VPN client is connected).

Does anyone have a recommendation for a mail package to do this? I'm 
aware that most mail packages will put undeliverable mail into a 
deferred queue if it can't deliver it, but I really want to be able to 
store mail for more than that four day undeliverable period before 
giving up (if I'm away from mail for a week, that shouldn't kill the 
stored outgoing mail).
