I was wondering if I have to install a Mail Transport Agent like postfix or 
qmail on my system since I would only use it for local delivery. 
I have one host with one user (me) and I use Kmail to fetch and send mail. 
Is there a way to recive local messages sended by system programs like cron 
without installing a full featured MTA ?
