[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: ssmtp-2.60.9-1

I have updated the version of ssmtp to 2.60.9-1.

Upstream, there's a new maintainer; along with some minor changes, two
format string vulnerabilities were removed.  See

Meanwhile, I've changed the config file generator (/usr/bin/ssmtp-config).
A possibly important change: it encourages a default of
FromLineOverride=YES, which means that ssmtp will retain an existing From:
line rather than creating its own.  This seems sensible to me.  If you
don't use ssmtp-config again, nothing will change for you.

Also, thanks to Jari Aalto it will offer any settings from the current
config file as defaults; and I made it more verbose, on the theory that
when a program has only five options you might as well understand them.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
The ssmtp package is in the Mail category.

ssmtp is an extremely simple sendmail replacement, which forwards messages
to a mailhub (e.g., your ISP's outgoing mail server), and does nothing

Please read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/ssmtp-2.60.9.README for configuration
