I installed a fresh Cygwin 1.7 beta, and added the 'email' package.
Then, I ran the following to send myself a test message:
$ echo "Test message" | email --subject="Test" \

/usr/bin/email.exe: error while loading shared libraries:

Whoops. Is there something wrong with 'openssl'?
$ cygcheck -c email openssl
Cygwin Package Information
Package Version Status
email 3.1.2-2 OK
No 'openssl'. So 'email' was installed, but at least one of its
dependencies wasn't. Could this be an 'email' packaging bug?
Anyway, after installing 'openssl', 'email' works just fine.
It certainly involves your openssl pacakge:
$ cyg-apt find cygssl-0.9.8.dll
But it's not a packaging problem:
$ cyg-apt requires email
base-cygwin base-passwd ... openssl ...
I cannot say why openssl wasn't present after installing email.
