The problem with ssmtp is that it only sends to an outside source. It's
no longer maintained as far as I know, and I don't think there's a way
to get it to just go local, without sending outside.
(DISCLAIMER--haven't used it in a long while, and perhaps someone fixed
that, or found out a way, but I remember on Fedora forums there was a
thread about it, and I don't think anyone managed to get it to only send
and deliver locally.)
This also, you will note, sends email through (in the example) through
gmail, that is, going outside the machine.
