Allow your PC to dial out automatically.
If this isn't practical there is no way James can cope well with
intermittent connection.
Two major issues are 1/your DNS lookup won't work and 2/ host will be
James probably re-tries, but will possibly eventually give up.

I happily used James with ISDN dialing up when needed, and Demon's SMTP is
aware that you're connected and fw's any mail which may have arrived while
you were offline, so If you have unmetered access just let your pc dial
if not you could switch james off when you are offline,
if you want to write a mailet you could try writing one that stores
outgoing mail and sends it at specific time of day.

There was a guy who asked a similar question for using James aboard ship,
where satellite call charges had to be strictly controlled, I think he got
a similar answer.

If you do write a batch transport mailet let us know!
