Seen from the cron point of view, if the cron job produces any output on stdout
or stderr, the output will be placed in an e-mail sent to you (you can configure the
address in the MAILTO variable).
As as recall, the ssmtp-config script will ask you if you want sendmail to point to
ssmtp. If you answer yes, cron will use ssmtp to send the e-mail.
