1. Dynamic SLIP and smail configuration

I know it wasn't made for mail etc... But sometimes it's so damned easy
to be able to reply mail very fast (mailservers etc...)
But I use a dynamic SLIP connection...
I configured /usr/lib/smail/config to accept all the possible incoming
addresses, but I still have one problem...
I need to find a way to configure something to recognize the dynamic
That is: if I'm assigned I want to have

If I'm at annexs1p2.... you get the point I guess...

Is this possible?
