Stick it in /usr/lib/nullmailer/sshsendmail, then add something like:

foohost.com sshsendmail --identity=/var/mail/.ssh/id_rsa --username remotemail --sendmail-options='-baruser@foohost.com'

to /etc/nullmailer/remotes.

Unfortunately, it's not terribly well documented, because I wrote it
specifically for my craziness, and not for general consumption. [You
can easily see the operation of it and hack it for your purposes,

I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be
pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My
life is my own. I resign.
