Indeed, that is (at last) the default:
$ reportbug --version
Do you have a "mail transport agent" (MTA) like Exim, Postfix or SSMTP
configured on this
computer to send mail to the Internet? [y|N|q|?]?
Please enter the name of your SMTP host. Usually it's called something like
or "smtp.example.org". If you need to use a different port than default, use
alternative format. Just press ENTER if you don't have one or don't know,
and so a Debian SMTP
host will be used.
