And so it is.

Yep, these typos are killing me. That got ssmtp working, and I'm sending
mail out quite nicely with mutt now. However, into each life a little
rain must fall. Fetchmail is no longer working. After googling the error
message I found that fetchmail uses sendmail to deliver mail to my
mail spool, and I disabled sendmail after installing ssmtp. Hoepfully I
can find a way to get fetchmail to deliver directly to my spool. Back to
the man pages.
Thanks for your help.
