The /at/ package recommends /exim4-daemon-light/ package, 
/exim4-daemon-light/ depends on /exim-base/
and /exim4-base/ suggests/bsd-mailx.
/On my side, I have used option /--no-install-recommends/ for installing 
the /at/ package as a workaround.
It looks like:

/RUN if [ -n "$HTTP_PROXY" ]; then echo 'Acquire::http::proxy 
"'$HTTP_PROXY'";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80proxy; fi//
/*/RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get update && apt-get -yV 
install --no-install-recommends at psmisc/*/
//RUN DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get update && apt-get -yV 
install \//
//        apt-utils daemon gcc make cmake python-paramiko python-lxml 
python-simplejson \//
//        python-matplotlib python-serial python-yaml python-openpyxl 
python-requests \//
//        python-reportlab libtool xmlstarlet autoconf automake rsync 
openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jdk \//

net-tools vim curl \//
//        inotify-tools g++ bzip2 bc libaio-dev gettext pkg-config 
libglib2.0-dev \//
//        time python-pip python-xmltodict at minicom lzop bsdmainutils

//        mc netcat lava-tool openssh-server python-parsedatetime \//
//        libsdl1.2-dev libcairo2-dev libxmu-dev libxmuu-dev iperf3//
I have added installing the /psmisc/ package which Jenkins depends on.
Before, /psmisc/ was installed when we installed /at.
