From my perspective, email doesn't need to do TLS, that is left to
ssmtp. The only
thing email should be doing is passing the various commands/directives
command line to ssmtp.
I know that ssmtp can/does do TLS - I fixed that myself, and it works
the command line).
Relinking the TLS library with email, occurs to be redundant to me.
if that is necessary, has anyone made a patch available to do that?
My objective is to get a command-line e-mail; if there are alternates to
please send me some suggestions.
