I just found the geomWatch port which you maintain. I have a question
about it, but haven't been able to find the answer yet, so I hope you
don't mind me asking you:
I intentionally do not have a full blown MTA on my box, so I don't have
anything listening at localhost:25. Instead, I use the ssmtp
port, as suggested in the FreeBSD handbook section "Setting Up to Send
Only" <https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/outgoing-only.html>. ssmtp
is then configured to talk to an external SMTP server whenever a local
account tries to send an email.
I tried setting up geomWatch, but it seems like it requires speaking
directly to an SMTP server. Is this correct? Or is there a way to set
it up so that it perhaps just uses something like the built-in "mail"
command to send, which would (on my box) then use ssmtp behind the scenes?
Or must I either set up an SMTP server on my box or else configure
geomWatch to use an external SMTP server?
