Default New install - possible to ONLY use third party email?

Time to update my ISPconfig and VPS, starting afresh.

This time, I'd like to completely leave out ALL aspects of mail servers - sendmail, pop, smtp, procmail... if it's mail related, I want it off my server.

Basically, everything PHP based I'm using (phpbb, wordpress etc) works just fine using my gmail account's SMTP for sending. But I've not yet discovered a way of doing that for things like cron jobs.

Maybe I haven't googled the right keywords, but is there SOME way of providing some kind of "bridge" between a Ubuntu 13 install and my gmail account so that command line and system stuff including CRON can still get messages to me?

Thanks!
