Nullmailer Just Works when installed, but as a fail-safe I should also 
have mentioned that you might want to:
# echo "$ROOT_MAIL_TO" >> /etc/nullmailer/adminaddr
# /etc/init.d/nullmailer restart

Where "$ROOT_MAIL_TO" is, oddly enough, the address to which to send 
root's mail...  'man nullmailer' to get a list of the trivial files 
nullmailer uses for config settings.

Cool, I didn't know about that one.  At a high-level it sounds like the 
do the same thing.  Anyone know anything more?

Ahh, I love Google:

I have no strong opinion either way, but this argues that ssmtp should 
go away in Gentoo (I only skimmed the page):
