[CCing ports at freebsd.org]

First of all you need to make sure this is the problem. If the
FreeBSD.org mail server rejects your mail, you should get a notice
sometime later with reasons.

If that's the problem, you'll need to find some mail server with RDNS
and setup your ssmtp to use it instead of your ISP. Personally I use
hotpop.com, which is free. You can check if an SMTP server has a RDNS
record at
and use which ever fast for you.
