Thanks for the quick reply.

In fact I was wrong. I dig into my apt's config, and I found:
 - Install-Recommends "true"
 - Install-Suggests  "false"

Apt wanted to remove nullmailer because Install-Recommends was set to "true".

And, if you move the list of supported MTA from Recommends to Suggests, this 
will work in my case, but hosts where Install-Suggests is set to "true" will 
still have the issue, no?

If the only tool you have is hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
