email and gmail

I am trying, fruitlessly, to get the email program to work with my gmail 
account.  I have ssmtp working fine (I did need to do some patching and 
recompile ssmtp).  The email program, on the other hand, is just 
slightly beyond me. :-(

My debugging indicates that email is not passing the parameters 
(username/password) to ssmtp to initiate the TLS/SSL connection.  This 
from the following error message:
email: FATAL: Smtp error: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first 

Are there any builds of email available that pass parameters correctly 
to ssmtp?  I indicate SMTP server in the email-config dialog -- is that 

I look forward to your reply!
