Your basic choices are sendmail <http://www.sendmail.org/>,
postfix <http://www.postfix.org/>, and qmail <http://www.qmail.org/>.
Sendmail is part of the base system (there's also a port), and postfix
and qmail are both in the ports tree.  If you're not looking to install
anything additional, you should consider using sendmail since it's there
already and works out of the box as long as it's enabled.
