There isn't really any code to handle this.  You can search the
archives on in-stock or something.  I have developed something that is
fairly rudimentary.  As soon as I can, I will post a link to a patch
for the construct demo.

IC relies on whatever mail configuration your server itself has.  If
you want your server to use a "smarthost" you will need to configure
your Mail Transport Agent (MTA - sendmail, qmail, etc.) to do that.
