nullmailer is, in general, broken.
For one, it doesn't seem to understand errors at the other side; 5xx is
simply interpreted as "hey, I'll try again next minute". (Nice when the error
is because the mail was over 50MB.) Second, the logging is completely
obscure; anything fatal doesn't seem to be logged at all, but it's excesively
verbose and chatty about seemingly normal occasions. In general, I've only
seen problems with it; even sendmail seems easier to get to work. With
hand-written config file. Written in ed.
