I have setup my own VPS with Linode (Ubuntu Server 10.04LTS) and I am using it for my various Node apps I have developed. The server and apps are running great and I love the fact the server itself is relatively simple.

I know of various mail servers that I could install on my box, such as Postfix, but I wonder if there is something that is simpler to install and configure as all I need is one that sends outgoing mail.

I have a few Node apps that require outgoing email, as well as Monit, which I want to send me email when one of my Node apps goes down.

Is there software that I could install, which is easy to install and configure, that is only for outgoing mail?
