have you looked at ssmtp? i just took a quick look at the source, and
it seems that it's *extremely* simple -- sounds like a good one for a
config options excerpted from the INSTALL file:
root: The person who gets root's mail (also daemons', etc).
This userid (on the mailhub) get all mail sent to
local adressees with userids less than 10. In other
words, she gets mail the system mails to root, daemon,
mailhub: The place where the mail goes. This is looked up with
gethostbyname, and so must resolve to an IP address. MX
records don't count, as several vendors' machines that we
run ssmtp on (notably suns) don't fully support them.
They'd be nice, though...
rewriteDomain: The place to say the mail came from. This is for
hostname-hiding, and only applies if the programs is
compiled with REWRITE_DOMAIN defined. We don't usually have
to do so (our main mailhubs run zmailer: our clients run all
sorts of junk).
hostname: the Fully Qualified Domain Name of the machine, in case
you have set hostname to the short form.
it would be way cool if the configuration of the above could be
somehow linked in with a ppp dialup script -- ie, i have two ISPs, and
two associated mailhub/hostname settings. the right one should be set
when i connect to a given ISP.
i believe there's already a debian package of ssmtp.
