fetchmail + smtpd - question

I ma thinking to create a MTA on my box, to benefit UNIX/BSD mail infrastructure - the first point is that I am using a remote mail server -
so I want all my email will pass through this remote server.

I'm thinking that the pair fetchmail and smtpd together may work as
a simple MTA - fetchmail for downloading messages, smtpd for uploading

I need help to configure smtpd to use the remote mail server. All outgoing
emails should be delivered via this remote mailserver.

You can do this with /etc/mail/mailertable

add this line:

. esmtp:[<your remore mailserver>]

remember "makemap hash mailertable.db < mailertable" after changing mailertable
