Indeed, that is (at last) the default:

$ reportbug --version
reportbug 6.5.1

$ reportbug 
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 
the <host>:<port>
alternative format. Just press ENTER if you don't have one or don't know, 
and so a Debian SMTP
host will be used.
