+We need a lightweight mail forwarder in our root.
+The previous solution was to rely on some modifications in Savane that
+used a SMTP client written in PHP (thus, with no dependency).
+Having to patch Savane and rely on incomplete code was nor pratical,
+so we use a sendmail-compatible application instead.
+Let's install ssmtp.
+cd ~
+apt-get build-dep ssmtp
+apt-get -b source ssmtp

+And here is the ssmtp.conf configuration file:
+# The person who gets all mail for userids < 1000
+# The place where the mail goes.
+# Where will the mail seem to come from?
+# The full hostname
+# Set this to never rewrite the From: line (unless not given) and to
+# use that address in the from line of the envelope.
