How do you automate Start Mail command?

I have TCPIP starting automatically when the system boots.  But to get mail flowing I have to manually enter:

$ TCPIP

TCPIP> START MAIL

How can I avoid having to enter these two commands?

      tcpip show version

   One command:

      tcpip start mail

   Is the SMTP service "enabled?:

      tcpip show service smtp

   If confused, I'd probably do:

      @ SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

and look for SMTP among the "Client components".
