A simple MTA only for Gmail?


Hi all. I was wondering if anyone knew of a lightweight and easy-to-configure MTA, or any other way of sending messages from a command-line environment without too much of a fuss. I would only be sending messages through a single Gmail account, and would rather not bother with all of the sendmail configuration.

I use exim, and gmail as smarthost
See
http://wiki.debian.org/GmailAndExim4
To retrieve mail from gmail, you can use fetchmail.

I've seen this and have tried to implement it, but Debian's split-configuration way of installing exim really confuses me. It is much different in Slackware.

Sending only? From Mutt? To people offsite?

msmtp. It's a Mutt plugin that sends messages through an smtp server of your choice.
