/etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf module for Puppet


Puppet module for managing the /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf file.

Example usage

class { 'ssmtp': root => "", mailhub => "" }

Resulting file


# This file is automatically generated by Puppet
# Any changes made to this file will be lost on the next automated Puppet run!

# The person who gets all mail for user IDs < 1000

# The place where the mail goes

# The full hostname

Additional options

$port can be used to specify which port to connect to on the mail hub (default: 25). $hostname can be used to override the name of the local machine. $usessl if set to true then SSL will be used when connecting to the mail hub (default: false). This will also set the default port to 465 unless $port is specified. $usetls if set to true then TLS will be used when connecting to the mail hub (default: false). $usetlscert if set to true then a TLS certificate will be used when connecting to the mail hub (default: false). $tlscert when $usetlscert is set the path to the TLS client certificate should be specified here.
