I'd use postfix. Use this basic main.cf for sending only:
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
command_directory = /usr/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/lib/postfix
myhostname = CHANGE.THIS.TO.SOME.RESOLVABLE.FQDN
mynetworks_style = host
home_mailbox = Maildir/
alias_database = $alias_maps
alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
# relayhost = [my.relay.host]
Comment out relayhost if you want to relay your e-mail via another server (for example your ISP's SMTP server).
