@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.

Fails to build in a chroot with devtools:

chown: invalid user: ‘root.mail’

@pattyo thanks for letting me know, should be fixed now.

I think something is wrong with the permissions for this package.

The wiki ( says that /etc/ssmtp is accessible by root and mail, but a fresh install yielded /etc/ssmtp owned by root with 644 permssions.

Yes, I tested it on raspberry pi 2 and it worked without any problem. Thanks!

Did you test / does it work on armv7?
