The To: field is empty. How do I set it ?
The Subject: field is empty. How do I set it ?
How do I send a file ?

Forget about ssmtp! Really.
As you just realize it's not easy to use and if you want to send files it's not useable at all, since it has a limit of mails <= 4k size.

Use either blat, which is really a cool tool and should work fine under cygwin too. It has all you need, is stable, reliable, just great software.

Or if you like to have something more like a real "sendmail"-wrapper (just forwarding), you can easily write your own small wrapper in perl or python, which will be better than ssmtp in just a few lines of code...

I can send you mine as an example, if you're interested.
