instead of just leaving yourself with an unconfigured mail server,
how about installing ssmtp? it's a simple mta that does not listen
for incoming mail and merely forwards all mail to another server. i
suggest it because there are often important things that get sent
via email (like output of cron, et c.) and with an unconfigured
mta they just silently get dropped. it's also REALLY easy to set up:
it asks you the name of the hub to forward mail to, and that's it.
