Subject: from address of cron emails
| I'm running cron through cygwin, using ssmtp.exe as the sendmail

| in the outgoing e-mail.
| Is there any way of changing this?
Interesting. You are the first to mention this, so there is probably a way.
Have you tried running ssmtp-config and setting FromLineOverride and/or
FYI ssmtp is called with the following command line:
"-FCronDaemon -odi -oem -oi -t". I think ssmtp ignores all of them except possibly -F
Still FYI, exim with the default conf file rewrites to
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Cron Daemon)
If you find a solution, please let us know.
