to the original poster:

as much as people like to laugh about UUCP, it still works.
UUCP over TCP/IP should do the trick.  why not?

if you expect that it is often likely that there will be _no_ 
routed path between source and destination hosts, and that 
queue-next-closest-available is what you want, i'd say UUCP
is exactly your solution.

smtp has way too much of what you don't need.
