@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

TLS_CA_File=/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

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?

Unfortunately, this version appears to break SMTP-auth. I've used ssmtp for many years on my Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1, Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2 and lately on my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3 - & it has worked flawlessly with both Gmail smtp-auth and my ISP's own smtp-auth relay to send system logs and suchlike. The new ssmtp 2.64-15 version PKGBUILD states that it is no longer "compatible with your architecture", and although it will compile and install if I force it, smtp-auth fails. If I revert back to version ssmtp-2.64-12-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz or ssmtp-2.64-12-armv6h.pkg.tar.xz then it all starts to work again.

@Darkmind2007 done.

Could you please add 'aarch64' to the list of supported architectures in order to be able to build on Raspberry Pi 4?

I manually updated PKGBUILD on my Pi 4 running Manjaro and it worked perfectly

@pattyo should be fixed now.

No problem. The permissions on the directory are now OK, but I think /usr/bin/ssmtp needs something like

chown root:mail /usr/bin/ssmtp

chmod 2755 /usr/bin/ssmtp

to be able to read /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf when run as a non-root user (e.g. sendmail).

@dbermond mail is created by the filesystem package which is in base and therefore assumed to be present.
