I'm assuming you don't know which MTA you're using. On the command line, run telnet localhost 25. It should come back with a 220 header. This would generally tell you the MTA you're using (hit cntl-] and type close to exit):

  • If port 25 fails, you're not running an MTA.
  • If it works, look for the name, and try service <name> stop.

.

To disable its startup, look for a corresponding script in /etc/init.d and delete it. update-rc.d <name> remove may work, too, but I understand update-rc.d enough yet to know.
