I just syslog everything to a central server (on the same LAN). I looked at 
putting on an embedded mailer, but I couldn't find one, so I just left postfix 
running and I forward root to mail to the same central server that receives the 
syslog records. I think that box has postfix and the daily emails turned off 
because mostly what I get are pkgsrc vulnerability messages and that box 
doesn't have any additional packages on it.

That's the magic. You've measured your power consumption.
