I use exim4. It should fit in your scheme. I tried some lighter MTAs but
couldn't configure them properly, so fell back to exim4 which is installed by
1. This should install everything you need:
sudo aptitude install exim4
The configuration type should be: "smarthost with fetchmail".
2. Put the login info for your ISP in /etc/exim4/passwd.client:
<isp-canonical-smtp-address> must be the canonical name of your ISP's SMTP
address. You can find that with:
3. Put your email address at the ISP in /etc/email-addresses:
4. I'd recommend adding this option to /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template:
smtp_accept_queue_per_connection = 0
5. Update the configuration files
sudo /etc/init.d/exim4 reload
6. I'd also recommend installing geximon to make your life easier when you
have some problem such as an email that couldn't be delivered:
sudo aptitude install geximon
