configuring mta without domain


I haven't used mail on my debian server (no kde or gnome installed) until now. Now I need to send mail (I have a script in perl that has to send mails in some occasions) but I don't know anything about that. I don't have a domain name, just an e-mail account whit my isp, how can I set up postfix or any other mta?

Help please

if it's just sending, install bsmtp, esmtp or ssmtp, whatever is in apt. they are fake MTA's and just provide enough functionality to send mail out to a relay from the local system and permitted relay sources. they are a doddle to configure, if you even need to configure them at all.
