Where is the point? OP did already know how to manage dependencies, he
can install ssmtp if he wanted to, but he doesn't. You just move the
choice a bit, I did in contrary suggest a solution for mutt and similar
MUA packages and users that have very custom wishes.

I though the whole thread is about how to resolve dependencies without
having any MTA installed. You imagine that some newbie user wishes to
install mutt but has _intentionaly_ removed exim before and now needs
some help. Very unlikely, IMO.
