Re: FW: ssmtp with multiple email accounts

See, I knew someone else must have run into this :-)

George Davidovich, who would rather I didn't publish his email
address, sent me this:

The ''set sendmail="/usr/sbin/ssmtp.exe -au...'' definitely works.
What I couldn't get to work was ''set sendmail="/usr/sbin/ssmtp.exe
-C<some config file>'' but I haven't managed to get to the bottom of
that yet. I kept getting a message something like "Couldn't connect to
mailhub:25" which was a bit odd because in the referenced config file
I specified port 465 as I recall, so it isn't clear if it isn't
picking up the file correctly or if there is an issue or incorrect
error message in ssmtp, or what.

I'm not so keen on using the folder-hook since I have *lots* of
folders and so would need to keep the hooks sync'd with
creation/deletion of folders, but it works fine for what it is.

If I make any further advances I'll post to the list, but meanwhile I
hope someone finds this info useful.
