Not really. The component itself just executes external programs, it
doesn't know anything about mail (or anything else, for that matter).

There's a couple of things you could try though:

- There a smtp-transport in CVS .. I haven't used it, but its reported to
  work.

- Write a simple program that takes an email message on standard in and
  sends it into Jabber (in Perl using Net::Jabber, perhaps), and plug it
  into your MTA via /etc/aliases or similar.

That second one interests me, now I think about it. Maybe if I get some
time this weekend I'll look at implementing something.

Thanks for the kind words :)

Rob.
