@TwentyoneThree ssmtp rebuild fixed it for me.

The systemd makedepends is not needed. Package filesystem from core already takes care of this as can be seen here:

@TwentyoneThree I don't see that error here, ssmtp is (still) working fine.
$ readelf -d /usr/bin/ssmtp | grep NEEDED | cut -f2 -d[ | cut -f1 -d] | sort
Maybe you need a rebuild?

Stopped working on an up to date Arch system:

ssmtp: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Dependency openssl-1.1 required

@Muflone done!

The package cannot be built in a clean chroot as dbermond pointed:

chown: invalid user: ‘root.mail’

The group is provided by filesystem's sysusers.d but systemd is not present into the build environments

Please add systemd to makedepends as it's required to build the package

@JustinSB done.

@dcelasun Can you please add 'armv6h' and 'armv7h' to the list of supported architectures, so we can install it easily on a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (Rev 1.1 and 2) or a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus. I have manually updated PKGBUILD on all 3, and it builds and works successfully, now that I've added the TLS_CA_File line to ssmtp.conf to fix my smtp-auth issue.

@dcelasun Sorry. My mistake. The new ssmtp.conf default file has grown from the old 14 lines to a new 47 lines, full of helpful configuration instructions - amongst which is this brand new section that I completely missed:

#IMPORTANT: The following line is mandatory for TLS authentication


As soon as this line was added to my old ssmtp.conf file, everything started to work as normal again.

I'm guessing that this was introduced in Fedora's validate-TLS-server-cert.patch

@JustinSB the only difference between -12 and -15 is this and this which change certain directory and file permissions.

Are you sure this is not a local issue? Are you using root or is the user sending the email in the mail group?
