Ah, first snag...

# aptitude remove postfix* --purge

The following packages will be REMOVED:
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 3,549 kB will be freed.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  pve-manager : Depends: postfix but it is not going to be installed. or
                         mail-transport-agent which is a virtual package.
  bsd-mailx : Depends: default-mta which is a virtual package. or
                       mail-transport-agent which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

      Remove the following packages:
1)     bsd-mailx
2)     proxmox-ve-2.6.32
3)     pve-manager

      Leave the following dependencies unresolved:
4)     at recommends default-mta | mail-transport-agent
5)     cron recommends exim4 | postfix | mail-transport-agent
6)     logrotate recommends mailx
7)     mdadm recommends default-mta | mail-transport-agent
8)     mutt recommends default-mta | mail-transport-agent
9)     procmail recommends default-mta | mail-transport-agent | fetchmail

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q
Abandoning all efforts to resolve these dependencies.

So, how do I switch the default-mta to ssmtp?
