I have updated the version of ssmtp to 2.60.9-2.

The config-file generator ssmtp-config now also suggests creating a link
from /usr/sbin/sendmail to /usr/sbin/ssmtp.  Also, ssmtp dies with a
helpful error message when the config file doesn't yet exist (instead of
just trying to proceed with the mailhub being "mailhub").

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ 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
