The default email server for Debian is exim. This can be
set up in one of several ways, depending on how you will access your
email. The exim
configurator will list the options.

send email, yet still delivering email locally (which is obtained
using fetchmail, for example, from an IMAP server, you
will choose option 2.
The information you then supply is:
|root email sent to
This means that mailhost.togaware.com is used for sending
email. Any email sent from Athens (101.5) to an unqualified address
(i.e., no @) will have athens.togaware.com appended
to it and delivered locally.
