ssmtp #11

Supports: trusty


A secure, effective and simple way of getting mail off a system to your mail hub. It contains no suid-binaries or other dangerous things - no mail spool to poke around in, and no daemons running in the background. Mail is simply forwarded to the configured mailhost. Extremely easy configuration.


This charm deploys a generic subordinate that can be related to other server charms to enable them to send e-mails. SSMTP is minimalistic MTA good enough for you to get e-mails out of the machine to another mailhost, which is perfect for simple notifications and to replace basic sendmail features.


Just deploy it and add a relation to other server unit:

juju deploy server
juju deploy ssmtp
juju add-relation server ssmtp

If your configuration templates are correct, from now on basic e-mail sending should work normally.
