I run nullmailer <http://untroubled.org/nullmailer/> on all my none-mail-server 
systems. I have also used mini_sendmail <http://www.acme.com/software/mini_sendmail/>
with good results. They are both relay type front-ends and do require you to
to have access to a real MTA that will accept your mail.
nullmailer uses a queue so it handles server-down situations much better but
that means you have to run a queue-monitor daemon.
mini_sendmail is much simpler and may well meet your needs.

I am sure there are others as well, but I have not used them.
