Configure the system to be a satellite system of your Postfix MTA.

You can do that either through something simple like ssmtp [1] or nbsmtp [3] 
or if you want to be able to cope with queuing messages should your MTA be 
unreachable then you could install Postfix or Exim as a simple client.

ssmtp is packaged for both Debian & Ubuntu, nbsmtp is packaged for Ubuntu.

[1] - no idea where upstream is for it!  Debian has tarball and patches [2].
[2] - http://packages.qa.debian.org/s/ssmtp.html
[3] - http://nbsmtp.ferdyx.org/
