I have installed apache2, php5, mysql5, php5-mysql and other supporting packages on an EC2 server, and when I started to install drupal7, it pulled in several packages including mail support, and presented me with a screen:
┌────────────────────────┤ Postfix Configuration ├────────────────────────┐

What is/are the preferred way(s) to get mail working adequately for Drupal on an EC2 server running Ubuntu Raring? I searched and didn't find a recommendation.
The paste above is from Ubuntu Raring's aptitude program, which is requesting to know how to configure Postfix (and, perhaps, other programs pulled in). I am not asking how to configure Drupal once I have a working local SMTP server. I am asking how to configure postfix, pulled in by aptitude on an attempt to install drupal7, so that I have a working local SMTP server. This is for an EC2 instance, and I don't know what is appropriate in EC2.
