Sending mail with the Raspberry Pi

Sending mail with the Raspberry Pi

Raspian, the default linux distribution for the Raspberry Pi does not install a mail server by default, so the raspberry cannot send mails. For raspberries running headless, i.e. without a monitor attached, mailing would be a good feauture, e.g. to report pending package updates, etc. So here is a simple way to enable sending mails from the raspberry without installing a full featured mail server.
