Setting up exim4 isn't all that hard to do.
Run dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config as root. Follow the instructions and
set Exim up to use a smart host to send email. It doesn't have to
listen on any port except 127.0.0.1. Set up the smart host as the smtp
server for your isp--mail.example.com--and add your user name and
password as follows to a single line in /etc/exim4/passwd.client :
"mail.example.com:username:password" with url being your ISP's mail
server and the username and password being your username and password
for your ISP's mail server. Don't include the quotes as I used them
only for delineation from the rest of the sentence.
Restart exim4, or edit /etc/exim4/passwd.client before running
dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config, and the email function in Gimp will work
as it should.
