Thanks for the suggestion - that was about the first thing I tried
All it gives me is:
make: don't know how to make uninstall. Stop
I used 'find' to locate ssmtp also in=20
But 'make uninstall' in that directory gives the same error.
The sources appear to be in
That doesn't seem to get me much further though.
Maybe I'll just try doing a fresh 'sendmail' install and that will =
ssmtp - I can't see that it will do any harm, as I couldn't get ssmtp to
help with what I wanted originally anyway (send emails from within php) =
wound up using perl's Net::SMTP and MIME::Lite extensions instead.
I saw something on one of the UseNet lists that doing an install of
'postfix' would effectively uninstall (or at least deconfigure) ssmtp, =
think that was on a Linux platform. Just guessing that the same might =
with FreeBSD if I were to try reinstalling/upgrading 'sendmail'.
Thanks for any further clarifications
