I know nothing about the internals of SquirrelMail, but ...

If there is a way to set a config variable to tell it to use something
other than exim4, you might look into msmtp, which is a debian package.
I found it very easy to configure for me, a single user, and the man
page gives pointers on system-wide config, which I can't vouch for.
