nbsmtp is not maintained by its developer any longer. But, then again, you 
can check:

Only simple smtp thingie I know of is sendmail that comes out of the box w/ 
RHL; you don't have to do anything to relay mail w/ that unless you want to 
change the "Gw" variable. I'd suggest you use Postfix. Check out a 
documentation here: http://www.double-helix.org/linux/postfix.php

A perfect combo of Mutt/ Postfix/ Procmail/ Fetchmail and GnuPG is one of 
the most powerful things in the world.
