Best way to deliver mail?


I'm trying to figure out the best way to send email via dial up modems/batch processing. I work at a retail company and we connect to store computers once a night via dial up modems. We send data between store and corp via uucp. We've currently been using sendmail to send emails, but I'm wondering if there is a better method. I'm rolling out a new "clone" on CentOS 5.1 and was thinking there may be an easier way to accomplish this. I want to make sure that our stores can only send emails to, and not,, etc. What's the best method to achieve this?

Any help is appreciated.
